“I have stayed in St Mark’s for rehabilitation now four times and each time it’s like coming home to family. I enjoy the staff, and the nursing care is outstanding and gracious. This is a great place to come when you need help to get back on your feet. (By the way, the food here is good AND healthy.)”
