About Us


Barbourville Health and Rehabilitation Center is a 50,000-square-foot, 135-bed facility (with nine private rooms) located in Barbourville, Kentucky. We have provided high-quality, long-term care and short-term rehabilitation to our residents for many decades, and in 2013 we began a new chapter and set a new standard in care, when we built the new Barbourville Health and Rehabilitation Center (formerly called Barbourville Nursing Home). Our new, $12-million, state-of-the-art facility features a library, private chapel, ice cream parlor, secure courtyard, nine private rooms, a spa area, a beauty parlor and a physician’s lounge. Each large room has a private bathroom. The recreation areas are spacious. The private courtyard is accessible from our common areas. Our new, well-equipped rehabilitation facility is fully staffed, features all new equipment and offers both inpatient and outpatient rehabilitative care. Our special spas even include large whirlpool tubs, each with their own dedicated flat screen television mounted at the perfect viewing angle.

Our facility offers 24-hour nursing care, physicians, pharmaceutical services, lab services, along with speech, physical and occupational therapies. We also feature special menus and diets, created and monitored carefully by a registered dietician.

Whether you and your family’s medical advisors are evaluating a short-term rehabilitative and recuperative stay for a family member or loved one, or the prospect of long-term care, we invite you to call today to schedule a tour.

Barbourville Health and Rehabilitation Center offers a variety of engaging daily activities to reflect residents’ interests. These activities are designed to help give our residents the opportunity to not only maintain but improve their quality of life. We feature a beautiful lobby area and quaint, cozy dayrooms for families and residents to visit or have activities together such as birthday parties. Residents and families can also enjoy a spacious front porch with ceiling fans for southern comfort or the large park area where we host BBQ dinners during summer months.

Barbourville Health and Rehabilitation Center offers phone and cable connections in each room, electronic security, individual heating and air units, private and semi-private rooms, a beauty and barber shop, the Wanderguard System and Hospice services. We also offer pet therapy, with our cat, Lily. And, we are proud participants in the Daniel Boone Parade.
