The Foley Center at Chestnut Ridge Receives a Deficiency-Free State Survey

Liberty Healthcare and Rehabilitation Services is proud to announce The Foley Center at Chestnut Ridge in Blowing Rock, North Carolina received a Deficiency-Free State Survey from the North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation (DHSR).

The amount of effort and dedication it takes to achieve deficiency-free status is tremendous and represents a testament to Liberty’s comprehensive approach to care for residents at The Foley Center.
