“I am honored to work at Grace Cottage. My colleagues are exceptionally competent and friendly. Our nurses and support staff are warm and caring. Grace Cottage’s small, rural setting creates a special environment, where we all have a ‘voice’ in the delivery of patient care. From the moment a patient walks in the door, everyone cares about ensuring that patient has the best experience possible.”
