Named one of the Best Nursing Homes in the U.S. 2020 by Newsweek
At Woodbine, outstanding health care and rehabilitation services are more than a commitment to those it serves, they are a 50-year tradition built by generations of physicians, nurses and nursing assistants and constantly reinforced by today’s dedicated staff.
We are proud that residents and their families routinely praise Woodbine’s staff – not just for what they do, but also for how they do it. The majority of new residents come to us because of positive word-of-mouth in the Alexandria community. For caregivers, there can be no greater compliment.
We encourage you to tour Woodbine if you are considering receiving intensive rehab so you can quickly return to your pre-hospitalization way of living, or if you are finding a new home where your daily medical needs will be carefully met. Our staff will be just as diligent and concerned about your needs as those of the United States Senators and Congressmen who have come to us for their post-hospital rehabilitation and long-term care.
Woodbine provides in-house physical and occupational therapy 7-days a week. Our masters and doctorate level therapists encourage their patients to have one-on-one therapy as often as they are willing and able to receive it – frequently in the morning and afternoon. We understand that you want to get stronger as soon as you can and we want to help you accomplish that.
