Professional Care You Can Count On

Caring Heart Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is a 269-bed skilled rehabilitation and nursing facility. Boasting over 80 private rooms, this Philadelphia facility is conveniently located along Germantown Avenue. Its location is central to public transportation and local business districts in Chestnut Hill while also a short distance from a vast network of health systems providing renowned high-quality care.

Caring Heart has a proud and storied history. Formerly known as Sacred Heart Manor and founded by the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, the facility opened in 1937, modernizing in 1957 and expanding again in 1997. The Carmelite Sisters provided compassionate care for the seniors in the neighboring communities until the facility changed ownership in 2009 becoming Caring Heart Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. The team at Caring Heart is honored to continue to uphold their legacy by providing the highest quality of care to those in need.

Caring Heart proudly offers Resident Centered Care as part of its Rapid Recovery Program. This program focuses on providing Physical, Occupational and Speech therapies in coordination with our skilled nursing care with the goal of returning patients to their highest level of independence. Residents and families may choose to remain for long term care. We are honored when a patient and their loved ones choose to call Caring Heart their home.

A variety of dining options, recreational activities and comfortable lounge areas including a rooftop patio are available to make your stay as comfortable and home-like as possible.
