Who We Are

Our goal is to the highest quality level of short-term rehabilitation and long-term nursing care, which is achieved through professional nursing and rehabilitative therapies.

We focus on utilizing a multidisciplinarian approach toward care. All our team members are committed to the same philosophy of providing excellent care through building relationships with our community members and their families, and addressing any needs as they occur. We believe that caring about people is as important as caring for them. Our community members are our highest priority and it is within our mission statement to enrich their lives to the best capacity available and to pursue excellence through our holistic approach, providing spiritual and rehabilitative support with proven techniques that contribute to the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of those entrusted to our care.


We understand that individual choices and lifestyles are important to everyone – regardless of where they live. With that in mind, our unique culture-change dynamics of person-directed care to nursing makes it possible for our staff to work with each resident and their family to make informed decisions about personal daily routines, based on individual choices. Our tobacco free community accommodates 146 members who need skilled and rehabilitative care. Each of our three neighborhood teams are expertly trained to embrace the importance of independence, choice, dignity, and quality of life.

Our facility is divided into three neighborhoods: Dogwood Terrace, Azalea Avenue, and Magnolia Way. We offer semi-private rooms as well as private rooms which are spacious enough to accommodate the necessities of our neighborhood residents, making their rooms as home-like as possible. Each room has a 26-inch flat screen television, with basic cable provided at no cost to them or their families as one of our basic provided services.

Just off Interstate 26 in the scenic Midlands of South Carolina lies the city of Newberry, one of South Carolina’s cultural and historic treasures. Newberry, founded in 1789, is a town rich in history with its antebellum mansions and tree-lined streets, and it is known for its rural beauty and small town charm. Newberry’s thriving downtown boasts an array of unique shops and restaurants, an historic opera house, a newly-renovated meeting center and events venue, and one of the southeast’s finest private colleges.
