A testimonial from an employee who currently works in Scheie 3:
“I have been working for the ACE Unit, which stands for Acute Care for Elderly, for over 5 years. Since I have been with the unit the unit has had many changes. There have been renovations which have improved the appearance to our floor, but we also now have recliners and walkers to help assist the patients healing process. There are challenging times with patients but to give back to this generation that have paved our path for the future we have is very rewarding.”
