A House Built On Love Since 1972.
Our approach to rehabilitation features a true cohesive, interdisciplinary rehabilitation team including Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech Language Pathologists, working together with nurses, dietary, social services and activities to assist patients in reaching their maximum potential.
Calvert City Convalescent and Rehabilitation Center provides aggressive treatment protocols, which have been modified to fit each individual’s needs. They progress at their own pace, based upon their level of endurance and medical involvement. The patient is the most valued member of the rehab team and we let out patients know that through our support, respect and encouragement.
Our mission is dedicated to maximizing independence, safety, comfort and quality of life for those residents remaining in our facility, as well as those returning home.
