Our Story

About Us - Our Story

Over the past several years we have wanted to bring Hillcrest’s long tradition of elegant care and world-class rehabilitation closer to Raleigh families. Hillcrest Raleigh is the fulfillment of that vision. Family owned and operated since 1951, Hillcrest Convalescent Center in Durham was the first certified senior care facility in North Carolina. Today, Hillcrest Raleigh combines that fine tradition of unsurpassed quality care with superior service – hallmarks of the Hillcrest brand for over 65 years.

We welcome your interest in Hillcrest and look forward to meeting you personally. In the meantime, please accept my invitation to look around our beautiful building. To glimpse at our delightful up-scale environment, simply click here.
