Our History

colostomy care servicesFrank Ladd opened Bancroft Convalescent Hospital in 1962. He knew little about nursing but his business background gave him the wisdom to know he needed an excellent RN director to assure his policy of top-notch care. He had two nurses who set the tone initially. In 1969, he asked Edie Parrott to work at Bancroft because she was highly regarded and experienced. When Frank retired in 1974, Edie carried on as owner and administrator and has maintained the philosophy of “Simply the Best-Whatever it Takes!” all these years.
Edie and Boyd

Edie’s son Boyd took over in 1996 so she could retire, but that didn't happen until 2015. We have continued to provide the top-quality care that we are well known for: care which by far exceeds what is required or provided in similar facilities.
