About Us

Commonwealth Care of Roanoke exists to provide the most caring, compassionate and complete rehabilitation we can. We achieve this through people expertly responding to the needs of every patient we care for. We achieve this through our position as a leader in Virginia healthcare, with twelve modern facilities across the Commonwealth. And we achieve this by paying careful attention to results, helping us meet or exceed compliance in all areas and return our patients to the best health possible.

At CCR, we are committed to serve Virginia, not only as a rehabilitation center, but as a community resource for issues affecting seniors. We are caring about what we do, and strive to infuse our everyday work and life with that spirit. And we are responsive at those times when our outcomes don’t live up to our standards. This responsiveness translates into fiscal and professional responsibility—a quality which has driven CCR to our current position as a healthcare leader.

CCR is different from other rehabilitation groups because we not only live our dedication to quality care, we are rooted in our communities. Each of our twelve facilities creates an identity that is seamless with its sense of place. We believe this helps our patients – it makes home part of the healing process.

At CCR, we believe the key to quick, complete rehabilitation is a caring, committed staff. From skilled medical professionals to responsive maintenance workers, CCR understands the value of the human touch.
