Bland Nursing & Rehab | 12185 Grapefield Road, Bastian, VA 24314
A Respiratory and Rehabilitation Center of Excellence
In the 1980’s, residents in Bland County formed a board for the purpose of bringing a health care facility to the community. Until then, the residents of Bland County had to leave the area when they needed skilled nursing care and intermediate care. The board was consisted of different occupations such as: nursing, a pharmacist, teacher, house wife, and business leaders. This board started small by selling hot dogs and other items.
Then, Dr. George Kegley became involved and was instrumental in helping the community to obtain a Certificate of Need from the Virginia State Health Department for a 57 bed facility, eight of which were skilled beds. The facility opened in 1989 and was named the George B. Kegley Manor.
In January 2005, Kissito Healthcare obtained the George B. Kegley Manor, which was incorporated to became Kissito Healthcare Bland County. The facility has 57 dual certified Medicare/Medicaid beds. The residents of Bland can now visit their loved ones in a skilled nursing facility in their community.
