Denise Rupert retires after 45 years of nursing


Longtime friends and fellow staffers from Haven Skilled Rehabilitation and Nursing and Lock Haven Hospital recently gathered to mark the retirement of Denise Rupert, RN, a 45- year veteran of both HSRN and the hospital. The celebration marked the thousands of patients cared for, the hundreds of lifetime friendships created and the countless lives she touched over the years. The gathering was marked by plenty of memories, lots of smiles and more than a few tears remembering the impact she had on the Lock Haven community.
