Davie Health & Rehabilitation Center celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and the opportunity for area residents to explore the facility on Madison Road in Mocksville.

A new 59,000-square-foot, 108-bed state-of-the-art skilled-nursing facility, it is owned and operated by Saber Healthcare. It replaces Autumn Care of Mocksville, which the company purchased in March 2016.

The 33,000-square-foot facility on Howard Street was built in several phases beginning in the 1950s and continuing through the early 1990s.

The new location provides an expanded rehabilitation center, more private rooms with private bathrooms, and an indoor courtyard where residents can visit together or with their guests. The new facility also allows the company to offer outpatient therapy which will be accessed through a separate entrance.

“Our goal at Davie Health and Rehabilitation is to provide high-quality healthcare and customer service to the Mocksville and surrounding communities we are privileged and fortunate to serve,” said Michael Demagall, Saber Health’s VP of Population Health & Business Development. “We believe if we provide good care, improve the health of the population we serve, and ensure our patients and families are satisfied with that care and services then we bring a much-needed value to that community and area healthcare partners. We then are able to connect in a meaningful way.

“We are excited to reinvest with our newest facility Davie Health and Rehabilitation and have the ability to give back in support of Mocksville and the surrounding communities”

Davie Health and Rehabilitation employs 102 full-time, part-time, and PRN employees, and is still hiring, particularly nurses and CNAs. Interested in a job? Stop by the facility and fill out an application.

Terry Bralley, president of the Davie County Economic Development Commission, is thrilled with the expansion and considers it a testament to the ease of doing business in Davie County and to its prime location near I-40.

“One of Davie County’s greatest assets is its existing industries and businesses,” said Bralley. “It is always so rewarding to see them reinvesting here because when they succeed our community succeeds. Please join me in thanking Saber Healthcare for its continuing commitment to our community,” Bralley said.

Saber Healthcare Group was founded in 2001 with two skilled nursing facilities near Cleveland, Ohio and has grown to more than 115 nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Delaware, Florida, Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. For more information, visit
