Dogwood Village of Orange County
Ground was broken on this addition on Oct. 9, 2007. This new 66-bed assisted living facility is the next step in developing a senior living campus adjacent to the original 168-bed nurse home. The name was officially changed from Orange County Nursing Home and Home for Adults, to Dogwood Village of Orange County.
The new facility will double the nursing home’s current assisted living capacity, while opening up additional nursing home beds.
The 90,000-square-foot, four-story facility will be joined to the existing nursing home facility on the west end. It will occupy about three of the site’s remaining six and a half acres.
The nursing home was opened in 1970 with 51 beds. It has since expanded to its current 168-bed capacity, and just last year celebrated its 35th anniversary.
