Highlands Health & Rehab is a 50-bed short-term rehab and long-term care facility conveniently located on campus at Highlands Medical Center in Scottsboro, AL.

Providing 24-hour nursing care.

We strive to help residents reach their fullest functioning potential, and get them back home where they want to be. However, in some cases going home just isn’t an option.
