Limestone Health Facility opened in December 1965 with 86 beds. Today we are celebrating fifty years as one the few locally-owned and operated long-term care facilities in the state of Alabama. In the last fifty years, Limestone Health has grown to a 170-bed licensed, skilled nursing facility specializing in long-term care. The 38-bed Senior Rehab and Recovery Center wing opened in 2004 to offer short-term inpatient physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy for patients who want to gain the strength and skills required to live independently. The home-owned and operated facility has continued to serve the Athens-Limestone County community for over five decades.
