Short-term care, 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.

Why choose Wexford House?

This rating is based on health inspections, staffing and quality measures. And it provides residents and their families an easy way to assess nursing home quality.
