Beautifully situated high atop a 68-acre tract of land, this 87,500 square-foot facility replaced Blowing Rock Rehabilitation and Davant Extended Care Center (formerly Blowing Rock Hospital) in 2017. 

Designed with the patient in mind, the 112-bed healthcare facility serves as a cost-saving alternative for patients healthy enough to be discharged from the hospital (post-acute), but not quite ready to safely return home. Residents and patients benefit from on-site physicians, short and long-term care, skilled nursing, rehabilitation services, memory support, assisted living and palliative care. In addition, the Chestnut Ridge campus is home to the Harriet and Charles Davant, Jr., Medical Clinic and Boone Drug’s Village Pharmacy.

Unlike its predecessor, The Foley Center functions less like a hospital, with a more modern patient-centered neighborhood concept. Private and semi-private bedrooms, a rehabilitation gym, community dining areas and six living rooms each equipped with breathtaking mountain views are just a few of the amenities residents can expect.

We provide the level of care that seniors need to flourish and triumph in their new phase of life to help make their golden years more enjoyable. We provide personal care support services such as meals, medication management, bathing, dressing and transportation. In addition, we offer 24 hour security, basic housekeeping, health and exercise programs, social programs, transportation and an on-site pharmacy and medical clinic.

Short-Term Rehabilitation

The Foley Center offers intensive therapy seven days a week, with the latest advanced equipment to help patients recover quickly and safely so that they can return home. Our neighborhood concept layout includes private and semi-private rooms. Each neighborhood includes a living room with expansive views and an intimate dining room. Before each patient leaves, we ensure readiness by practicing daily tasks in our Activities of Daily Living Suite. We will even visit the home to see that patients will be safe as they return to their normal routine.

The expert rehabilitation staff, with an average of 20 years experience, host weekly interdisciplinary patient care meetings and provide individualized patient and family education. Family members are also encouraged to join treatment.
