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.

Karen Ek, June 2021

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!
