Groundbreaking for Chestnut Ridge, Part of Appalachian Regional Healthcare System, Held Thursday, June 24


June 16, 2014. The groundbreaking for Chestnut Ridge in Blowing Rock will take place on Thursday, June 24, from 2-4 p.m.

Chestnut Ridge, part of the Appalachian Regional Healthcare System, is a 112-best post acute care facility that will replace the existing 72-bed Blowing Rock Rehabilitation and Davant Extended Care Center – formerly known as Blowing Rock Hospital. The new facility will provide rehabilitation, skilled nursing care, palliative care and memory support care.

“Looking to the future, Chestnut Ridge at Blowing Rock will allow Appalachian Regional Healthcare System to take care of the right patient, at the right price, at the right time,” said ARHS president and CEO Richard Sparks.

The public is invited to attend this momentous occasion. Due to road construction and limited accessibility, those who wish to attend are asked to park at Tanger Shoppes on the Parkway in Blowing Rock and ride an ARHS shuttle to the property. Multiple shuttles will run every 15 minutes from 1:15-2 p.m.
