Our History

Hillcrest Nursing Home opened in June 1963 with 23 private and semi private rooms. Over the years, through the generous support of donors, Hillcrest has undergone several renovations and additions. The Lorene Jennings Wing (1968), the Wrightstone Wing (1976) and the Cashen Wing (1982) created a 99 bed facility. In 1989, a spacious front living room was added. The number of beds increased to 120 in 1996 with a new Special Care Unit for Alzheimer’s residents and a Heavy Care Unit. Kitchen upgrades, a new activities area and a sun porch were also included. Little Folks Childcare Center opened its doors in 1998 and is now licensed for 45 children. In 2000, the Hidden Pines Assisted Living Community was completed with ten apartments. Renovations to the dining room were completed in 2002. The current project, which began in 2011, includes renovating the original wing and adding an enclosed resident transfer garage. Today, Hillcrest is a dual-certified Medicare/Medicaid Skilled Care facility with 160 dedicated employees.
