Welcome to Life Care Center of Rhea County

Located 40 miles north of Chattanooga, west of the Tennessee River, Dayton, Tennessee, is home to Life Care Center of Rhea County. Our state-of-the-art facility is two miles from Rhea Medical Center. The resort-like atmosphere and the homegrown values of our caregivers make us a perfect choice for short-term rehabilitation, long-term care or post-operative recovery, and in October 2016, we completed our annual state survey with no deficiencies..

Focusing on inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation with 24-hour skilled nursing care, Life Care Center of Rhea County was constructed in 2012 and includes state-of-the-art equipment, such as the AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill® and the Biodex Balance System SD. As part of a continuum-of-care campus, our residents and patients have access to assisted living, nursing care and rehabilitation services — all in one place.

Spotlight on Care

Walk to End Alzheimer's National Team

We're excited to return for a fourth year as a Walk to End Alzheimer's National Team. We're motivated to continue working together in 2019, with the plan of building upon last year's success.

Battling Alzheimer's disease has been a priority of Life Care Centers of America since the opening of our first facility in 1970. It is our prayer that we can provide an environment that allows our patients with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia to be encouraged, appreciated and loved. Our hope is for a cure. A cure that can save the memories and dreams of millions of Americans who live with the disease. Like the Alzheimer's Association, we also dream of a world without Alzheimer's.
