LaPorte City Specialty Care

The building was kept very clean, safe and welcoming. The food was better than I had expected. The staff I cannot say enough nice things about. Both nurses and CNAs were excellent caretakers.

A beautiful, clean facility. Newer management that is attentive, genuinely cares about their residents, and kind. One of the few 5-star rated facilities in the area.

These people are wonderful. They moved quick when we needed them and made the last few days of my fathers life as peaceful as they could. Thank you.

I first want to start by saying – this is why I wanted to come back to NorthCrest Specialty Care. I think all of your OT and physical therapy are great. I’ve learned a lot through them. The staff are great and helpful. Also, they are understanding and if you have questions, they always seem to have the answers and if they don’t know, they try to find out for you. Your nurses are great. If you need something, they get it if they can. I like all of you very much!

I wanted to express my gratitude to your staff for the excellent care Mom received during her stay at Westwood. Mom spoke very highly of the entire staff and we took great comfort in knowing she was receiving excellent care.
