The Laurels of Defiance - A Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation Center

The Laurels of Defiance

Guests at The Laurels of Defiance find our countryside setting, enclosed courtyard and attractive interior both comfortable and relaxing. Our 107-bed, skilled nursing and rehab center on South Jefferson Avenue in Defiance is just a short trip from Defiance Regional Medical Center and Mercy Hospital.   

Over the years, "The Laurels" has been considered the facility of choice by many people in Defiance County.  At The Laurels of Defiance we are dedicated to promoting the highest level of independence, care  and quality of life for our guests – whether they are with us for short-term rehabilitation, respite or hospice care or have chosen an extended stay with us. 

Our facility is an excellent choice for short- term neurological, respiratory, orthopedic and cardiac recovery, to name just a few – with licensed staff therapists who will work with your physician to create a care plan to transition you from hospital to home as quickly as possible. 

If you plan to stay with us longer, expect to be treated as a member of our own Laurel family. Along with top-notch, comprehensive medical care, you’ll enjoy an attractive dining area with home-style meals and events such as our annual Summer Cookout, Mother’s Day Tea, Spring Carnival, Christmas Extravaganza, Weekly Shopping Trips, and attending the Red Hat and Red Suspenders community groups.  

You’ll experience all this as a recipient of The Laurel Way of Caring, our unique philosophy by which our staff members offer respect, dignity, companionship and compassion to every guest, every day. We believe you deserve it.
