Eventually, things begin to brighten up for Danny after he hesitantly agrees to watch his friend’s new puppy. After a few hiccups, Danny learns to find joy again, thanks to the sweet puppy and his family’s help with him coming to terms regarding his mixed feelings of sadness, anger, grief, and questioning why his dog had died.“Lucy Geddes has written a valuable theme in a very gentle and loving book for young children to learn from in ‘Where Did Nicky Go?’” She answers the book title’s question with providing comfort and hope.

"We are very excited to add this well-respected healthcare campus to our mature operations in the greater Phoenix market" said Barry Port, Ensign's Chief Executive Officer. “As our first transaction since the COVID pandemic arrived at our door steps, our local leadership team in Arizona has taken extra precautions and have implemented a care plan to meet the needs of patients while closely following local and state guidelines. We have full confidence in our team’s ability to add this operation in the midst of a pandemic and look forward to working with our new team,” he added. “This is a unique time to add an operation but our local team of clinical and operational leaders are amongst our most experienced transition teams that have participated in many acquisitions in Arizona,” said Forrest Peterson, President of Bandera Healthcare LLC, Ensign’s Arizona-based subsidiary. “We are also very impressed with the talented group of caregivers at these operations and look forward to working together to enhance the clinical outcomes and to take this operation to new heights,” he added.
