"Rowan Ward"

About: Darent Valley Hospital

My elderly mum was admitted to Rowan Ward and unfortunately died two and half weeks later. During this period myself and my family were not only impressed but grateful for the warmth and high quality care she was shown by the doctors and nursing staff. At all times she was shown kindness and compassion, with staff doing everything they could to make her last few days as comfortable as possible. We are so grateful to everyone on Rowan Ward for the high standard of professionalism which was shown to us all at this difficult time.
