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 in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, 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 for both short-term and long-term guests, an enclosed courtyard, a relaxing front porch and a large family dining room which provide the perfect settings for both quiet time and socializing.
We pride ourselves on the continuity of care available to our guests of our facility through individualized programs designed to meet their specific needs. We excel at short-term respite and hospice care, as well as short-term rehabilitation. If you are rehabilitating with us, you can rest assured your therapist is working with your physician to design a plan that will get you back in the game as quickly as possible.
We put equal energy into caring for our long-term guests, whom we consider cherished members of our Laurel family. Guests enjoy a full slate of activities, community outings, special events, and birthday and holiday celebrations.
Our team strives to meet & exceed our guests' expectations with compassion & dignity. We call it The Laurel Way of Caring, and we do it every day.
We provide a complete range of services for patients that are unable to return home after a hospitalization. Our programs provide a safe transition from hospital to home with a depth of services that typically can not be provided through home health care or by family members.Learn More
Extended and long-term care stays are appropriate for individuals that require greater levels of care and support than can be provided at home or within an independent living setting.
