Exceeding Expectations at Laurel Health Care Company

Exceeding Expectations

At Laurel Health Care Company, it is our mission to create a legacy by exceeding the needs and expectations of those we serve while embracing The Laurel Way. We understand that caring is more than providing excellent medical and guest services on a daily basis. It also includes being a companion and treating each guest with the utmost dignity, respect and compassion.

The Laurel Way of Caring can be found in a warm smile, a kind word or a comforting touch. We are passionate about our mission and it is reflected in the letters we receive from former guests and family members.

"I spent three weeks in The Laurels of Canton for physical therapy recovering from a long illness. While a patient in The Laurels, the care I was given was professional, competent, and caring. I felt the staff took a personal interest in my recovery. The facility is comfortable, clean, and the food is good too. I met a lot of people there that became friends. I decided to volunteer at The Laurels after my recovery because I want to be active. I can say it is a very rewarding return. The staff is wonderful and I work with the Activities Department where I meet a lot of patients. In closing, I can only say they have all done more for me than I ever did for them."

Rocco, former guest and present volunteer

“To all the kind staff at The Laurels of Chatham: Thank you for all who cared for my mama during her four year stay at The Laurels. We appreciate all of you who cared so much for my mom and gave us an inviting, warm welcome when we came to visit her every Sunday.”
