REVIEWS

My wife has been at Pettigrew for a week. There are pros and cons. The cons are minor. If my family needs a skilled nursing facility again, we'll definitely use Pettigrew. Here are the cons. Facility is elderly, though it is kept clean. Food is average. WiFi is non-existent.Non of these "cons" should discourage you from using Pettigrew. The do a great job in the areas that are important.This place is kept spotlessly clean. My wife's room is kept clean and neat. The common areas of the facility are always clean.The nursing care is excellent, and it's excellent in the middle of the night and on weekends, as well as during normal business hours. We are very pleased with the skill and kindness of the staff. The physical therapy program is terrific. It's really helped my wife. They have a nice gym, well-equipped and modern.Pettigrew looks to be a well-run organization. The key staff positions are held by long-tenured employees. That's a big plus.I' recommend Pettigrew without reservation.

I'm fairly new here but overall im VERY impressed with the care that the residents receive and how professional and knowledgeable management and staff are.The facility is an older facility and the house keeping staff work just as hard as the nursing staff to maintain an odor free facility.....
