One of the nomination letters that Maria received came from an ANRC staff member. This employee was also a family member since her mother needed sub-acute rehabilitation and was Maria’s patient. She stated, ‘My sisters, father and I knew that my mom was in very good hands. To this day, my mother still talks about the great care that Maria provided to her. I get to witness her commitment and dedication to her patients on a daily basis. She is one of the reasons I am proud to be an Armenian Nursing & Rehabilitation Center employee.’
Maria is undoubtedly an asset to our organization and deeply admired by all.
