Compassionate Care in a Warm Atmosphere for Short or Long-Term Stays

UNC Rockingham Rehabilitation and Nursing Care Center is a highly ranked nursing center, earning top ratings from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The 121-bed facility is conveniently located on the UNC Health Care campus making it easy to coordinate care with UNC Rockingham Hospital, its services and nearby medical practices.

Whether the need is for skilled nursing care or short-term recovery after an acute injury or illness, the center gives residents and their loved ones peace of mind. Providing social and emotional well-being, as well as expert and compassionate care in a warm and inviting atmosphere is why residents choose to make it their home. Our interdisciplinary staff creates a safe and enriching environment for those who have chronic conditions that necessitate medical care and daily living assistance.

The Rehabilitation and Nursing Care Center is also a highly regarded choice for short-term care where the emphasis is on recovery. After an injury, surgery or serious illness, recovery support and motivation are important. We balance the work of recovery with the rest that is such an important part of the healing process. Our collaborative treatment approach involves nurses, a dietitian, pharmacists, as well as speech, occupational and physical therapists. Knowing that every patient is different, treatment plans are tailored to meet each patient’s specific goals.

Enriching activities also are an important part of residential life. Scheduled recreation activities take place daily, and special events occur on a routine basis, including holiday celebrations and our annual Prom, which is a favorite spring occurrence.
