Virtual Tour


My cousin, James Campfield has been a patient at Northdale Rehabilitation for two months and his care has been excellent. His sister, Anne, has been with him everyday. James got a roommate about one month ago, and according to Anne, the roommate's family, headed by Jeanna, was very rude to the staff. I came to Tampa the last week of June 2022, and am here again to visit my cousin for a week. I stay all day and have had ample opportunity to meet the staff and observe the rehab program and level of care give to patients. I give an A+ to every aspect of Northdale, especially to the CNA, Daisy Ortiz. James has thrived under her expert and compassionate care. James's sister, Anne, was very upset when the roommate's family, who complained loudly about everything, forbid Daisy to enter the room. Anne expressed her concern to the management that James was deprived of Daisy's excellent care just because the roommate's family did not like her. Finally, when the roommate left the facility, Daisy was allowed to take care of James again, and I have seen him flourish since late June. I was very happy to see Daisy. According to James, himself, " Daisy is unfailingly kind and attentive." James was incensed when he read Jeanna's remarks about Daisy. Anne, James and I believe Daisy deserves an apology, and we are happy to vouch for her competence and kindness.

This building is filled with positivity , great programs and a team full of truly caring healthcare providers . There are a lot of mediocre/bad nursing facilities out there , this is not one of them .
