Short- and Long-Term Care, Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation in Kingsport

There are times in life when we need a few extra days – or even weeks or months – to recover from a surgery, injury or illness.

Whether you need rehabilitation after a hospital stay, or you’re looking for a home-like environment that provides long-term rehabilitation, skilled nursing, enhanced respiratory services, medical comfort, hospice or respite care, you can count on Wexford House.

Plus we provide an onsite physician or nurse practitioner seven days a week, year-round.
