Heritage Hall Big Stone Gap is located in beautiful southwest Virginia bordering the Tennessee and Kentucky state lines. Quality of life is a very important focus here as we provide cutting edge medical care. We have recently taken our care to the next level by hiring an in-house physician, making us the only provider in the region with this level of care. We’re also very proud of the engaging, family-centered atmosphere we provide for our residents and their loved ones.
We specialize in short-term skilled nursing and rehabilitation therapies. Our short-term therapy unit boasts private rooms, a café area and a comprehensive ADL suite to practice life skills for our patients that are returning home. We have full-time speech, occupational and physical therapy on both an inpatient and outpatient basis and we also provide specialized services like diathermy and vital stim.
Our experienced teams of trained professionals develop a personalized plan for each of our patients. From Alzheimer’s care in our state-of-the-art dementia unit, to short-term rehabilitation, we work hard to ensure every patient has the right individualized care plan in place to meet their needs. Our physicians and nursing staff are always available and we have several consulting resources, including a pharmacy, a registered dietician, and a licensed clinical social worker. Our lab testing and emergency services are also conveniently located next door at Wellmont’s Lonesome Pine Hospital.
We offer a full range of activities, church services and social programs, including outings, crafts, parties, games, and musical programs. Our modern, state-of-the-art facility boasts solar energy and we’re proud to be one of the few facilities in the state to receive a zero deficiency life safety inspection for several years running. Our award-winning facility boasts a 30-plus year history serving patients from Virginia, Tennessee and Kentucky and we’re proud to be a member of the community.
