The Laurels of Hillsboro

A Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

The Laurels of Hillsboro is located in beautiful southwestern Ohio just two miles from Highland District Hospital. Our wonderfully decorated facility offers a safe, home-like environment for both short-term, long-term guests. Our enclosed courtyard with butterfly garden and several pleasant common areas offer guests and their visitors a place to enjoy each other.

The Laurels of Hillsboro underwent renovations including: new wall coverings, wall art, furnishings, nurses' station and remodeled employee lounge. Our front lobby has been renovated with new wood flooring, cozy furniture, and a coffee station. We have a new front porch with patio furniture for our guests to enjoy.

Our facility offers outstanding rehabilitation services in a dedicated rehab unit with veteran staff therapists. The dedicated rehab unit offers private and semi-private rooms equipped with televisions, telephones, free cable and Wi-Fi to help our guests feel at home while recovering. Our programs draw guests from Highland, Clinton, Ross, Adams, Brown and surrounding counties for our physical, occupational and speech therapy services. Our in-house therapy staff works closely with guests' personal physicians to design customized rehab care plans. Helping these friends transition as quickly as possible from hospital to home is our never-ending goal.

When you graduate from your inpatient stay you can continue to receive rehab from your own therapists in our Outpatient Program or our unique Aquatic Therapy Program.

"Everyone that works at The Laurels has been so sweet and kind to me, they did everything that they could to help me. The STNA’s were respectful, kind and did such a great job in getting me home."


"The staff at The Laurels of Hillsboro was wonderful during my stay, very thoughtful and did everything right. The food was great and so was the Rehab. This is my second stay here and I think The Laurels just keeps getting better. I'm glad to be going home so soon, but I'll miss everyone who cared for me."


"If I needed to go anywhere for Rehab or Skilled Nursing in the future, I wouldn't consider going anywhere but back to The Laurels of Hillsboro. The care I received while getting rehabilitation was excellent. The staff was great, very caring toward my wife and I both. The rehabilitation made it so I can return to my home independently, but I'll visit here every day, because my wife is staying."
