My husband had the misfortune of falling and fracturing his shoulder in Highland Park while we were visiting our daughter. Living in Florida and having an accident in another state is very difficult, but Whitehall of Deerfield made it less painful. Everyone there, from Gustavo (admissions) to discharge (Sara), helped us immensely and was remarkable. We had beautiful physical therapy – Michelle and Jamie were extraordinary, and the skilled therapists, nurses, and aides truly were terrific. We even wanted to bring our nurse, Jeanette, home with us! I highly recommend Whitehall because they are the ones who helped us reach our goal of returning home to Florida.

My husband was at Whitehall of Deerfield for three weeks. It was a clean, well-run, efficient facility with caring staff. Val in physical therapy was excellent! The food was pretty good, and there were always many alternative choices. As he started to feel better, we enjoyed the cute ice cream parlor and beautiful patio, too. They even have free valet during the week. Thanks to the excellent staff, we would choose Whitehall of Deerfield if we ever need rehab again!

I chose Whitehall of Deerfield (for my hip-replacement rehab stay) … and I was very glad I made that decision! From the physical and occupational therapists to the nursing staff, everyone really attempted to give me the best care possible. I never felt like anyone was ‘just doing their jobs.’ Bottom line: I would recommend Whitehall of Deerfield to others.

- Nick S

I am so pleased with the care I received while a patient at the Elective Orthopedic Pavilion at Whitehall. The entire experience was excellent. The physical and occupational therapy helped restore my independence and gave me the confidence to trust my new knees. I highly recommend Whitehall.

- Colleen W

I spent two weeks at Whitehall of Deerfield following total knee replacement surgery. I received excellent care and physical therapy that made all the difference in the speed and comfort of my recovery. Whitehall of Deerfield is a first-rate facility with an outstanding staff which I highly recommend to anyone needing post-surgical care.

- Joy S

I felt the entire staff at Whitehall wrapped its caring arms around me. Nurses fine-tuned medication around my responses; the nurse assistants attended to my every need and taught me self care. Physical and occupational therapy experts sent me home with the strength and confidence to manage stairs and showering. My spouse and I will always be grateful for the jumpstart that my week at Whitehall gave us toward a successful outcome to my surgery.
