Our philosophy starts and ends with providing a great customer experience and our customer service liaisons are a vital link in that process. During each patient’s stay within our short-term unit, they are assigned a “Customer Service Liaison” who will visit daily to ensure questions and concerns are followed up on, as well as to act as a goodwill ambassador to our patients and their loved ones!
