Trust is an essential component to any care program. Virginia Gay Nursing and Rehab has been entrusted with the care of older adults since 1962. While times have changed, our mission to provide our residents with quality care they can trust remains steadfast.

Our Nursing and Rehab services are designed to care for patients with either long or short-term and temporary needs.


Short-Term/Therapy Services We Offer
For residents that plan to return home, we provide temporary, quality onsite residential care and therapy to those residents that qualify, giving patients time to recover in a nurturing and safe environment. Working together, we design a recovery plan designed to help patients return home to independent living. Our close connection with Virginia Gay Hospital and Clinics, collocated on site, offers the convenience of easy scheduling of doctor appointments and therapy treatments.
Long Term Services We Offer
We recognize when you entrust us with long-term nursing care for your loved ones, you’re trusting us to oversee their health, safety and well-being. We will be there to meet the needs of each resident when they are unable to remain at home or have rehabilitation or respite needs. We provide around-the-clock care in a safe, comforting place residents can call home. Onsite medical professionals are available to meet each resident’s unique medical, physical, and emotional needs. You can be assured we’ll take good care of your loved ones.
