Dogwood Village Celebrates 50 Years
Dogwood Village celebrates 50 years of extraordinary service to the community seniors on October 14, 2020. The Orange County Board of Supervisors approved construction of a 51-bed facility, owned and operated by the County which opened October 14, 1970. In 1975 an additional 69 beds were added with the construction of the west wing for a total of 120 beds. The facility added a south wing in 1982 for a total of 34 assisted living beds and 134 nursing care beds. In 2002 the facility began offering short-term rehab services available to individuals who needed medical and rehabilitation services following a 3-night hospital stay. Dogwood Village added a new assisted living facility in 2009 licensed for 80 residents. Dogwood Village takes pride in the compassionate care offered by the staff and appreciates the community support that has been shown since the facility opened in 1970.
