The Laurels is committed to effective communication during this unprecedented time in our history. We regularly apprise guests, families, and associates to changes in facility status and policy as needed and as deemed appropriate.
We have been humbled by the support we’ve received from the local community and we truly appreciate everyone’s continued cooperation and understanding. For more information and resources regarding COVID-19, see the COVID-19 Resources page.
A Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
The Laurels of Mt. Vernon is a premier 104 bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation center, located in a residential area surrounded by a beautiful landscape and rolling hills. Our facility is conveniently located in the heart of Ohio, near local hospitals, physicians, shopping outlets and tourist attractions that include Ohio’s Amish country. We offer spacious guest rooms, an enclosed courtyard, a relaxing front porch and a large family dining room which provide the perfect settings for both quiet time and socializing.
In November of 2017 The Laurels of Mt. Vernon underwent renovations to our building. We added a secure memory care neighborhood, designed to help and slow down the process of dementia. We have a Geriatric Psychologist who will follow closely with our Medical Director to help facilitate this difficult disease process.
The Laurels of Mt. Vernon rehabilitation unit offers private rooms equipped with televisions, telephones, and Wi-Fi to help our guests feel at home while they recover. Our professional staff members know how to empower our short-term rehab guests with the tools to achieve their personal recovery goals. With our individualized rehabilitation program designed in partnership with your physician, we offer the fastest track from hospital to home. We have an orthopedic surgeon on staff to follow you throughout your stay with us. Once you reach your goal and return home you can continue working with our team through our out-patient therapy services. In addition, we offer out-patient therapy to the community five days per week. For your convenience we have a separate entrance to our therapy gym.
Short-term guests and their families often are so pleased with our services that they eventually choose to stay with us long-term. Our clinical approach to long-term care integrates medical services with home-like comforts that will make you glad you chose The Laurels of Mt. Vernon. What you’ll find most comforting, however, is the great value we place on our guests. We believe you deserve our compassion, respect and friendship, and you’ll see evidence of that every day. We call it The Laurel Way of Caring, and it starts in our hearts.
