We had a great time playing music bingo with the fourth grade students from St. Joseph Catholic School last week. The students learned some new songs, and everyone went home with LOTS of fun prizes! What a wonderful afternoon.

Thank you, Ms. Kodesh's class, for being part of our #NationalSkilledNursingCareWeek celebration!

Rice Lake Business of the Year

Karen Ek

I really didn't think I could rehabilitate to the degree that I have. The therapy team and all of the employees are such a blessing. When I first arrived, I could not walk and needed to use a lift to transfer. Now, I can walk with confidence because of everyone taking such good care of me. I highly recommend Dove Healthcare - Rice Lake for rehabilitation. It is a well-run organization.

Cheryl Okan

I came to Dove Healthcare - Rice Lake on the worst day of my life, and now, it has turned out to be one of the most wonderful experiences of my life. I owe a debt of gratitude to the therapy team for encouraging me towards my goals. I was always treated like I truly mattered to them. They were always patient, kind, and listened to me while I progressed and became independent.

Cheryl Okan, May 2021

Connie Ducommun

I was at Dove Healthcare - Rice lake for seven weeks for rehabilitation. When I first arrived, I wasn't able to walk or use my right hand. Through physical and occupational therapy, I now have use of my right hand and can walk with a walker. I cannot say enough about the employees and the care I received. They carried me in and now I am walking out!

Connie Ducommun, August 2020

Mary Dorrance

I fell and broke my leg while I was at home. I was at the hospital for such a long time and was worried about what comes next. All of the employees at Dove Healthcare - Rice Lake have been helpful, and I will miss everyone that has spent time to help and work with me. Therapy especially took their time to get me independent again, which I did not think was possible!
