Our Community Focus

Welcome to Premier Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, where we believe that what affects one of us impacts all of us. Our staff, our residents, and our volunteers are not just a part of our facility; they are your friends and neighbors, deeply rooted in the community.

Nestled in the charming town of Jackson, North Carolina, we are more than just a skilled nursing facility. We are a part of the fabric of this town, the county seat of Northampton County. Our local staff understands the unique needs of our residents, providing personalized care and support that goes beyond physical health.

We are dedicated to making our facility a safe, comfortable, and caring place to live, and we extend that commitment to our surrounding community. Our staff actively participates in local schools, serves on community boards, and volunteers their time and energy for various community initiatives. But our community engagement doesn’t stop with our staff; our wonderful residents also join us in many outreach programs. From inviting the community to celebrate with us to supporting local causes and cheering for the local teams, we are right in the heart of it all.

Welcome to our home, where community is at the heart of everything we do.

We provide each resident with a nourishing, tasteful, well-balanced diet that meets the daily nutritional and special dietary needs of each resident.

State of the Art Safety

Safety is a Top Priority

We have multiple prevention methods for the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses. These include routine electrostatic cleaning, needlepoint bipolar ionization (cold plasma), HEPA air scrubbers, and MERV 13 air filter installation. Cold plasma has been shown to kill multiple bacteria, viruses and mold spores, and recent studies have demonstrated a significant reduction of COVID-19 virus when installed.

Partnering With Industry Experts

We developed and implemented industry-leading protocols to help prevent the spread of disease. We partnered with university and community-based epidemiology clinical experts, the North Carolina Statewide Program for Infection Control and Epidemiology (SPICE), while following state and CDC guidance.

Some of Our Additional Safety Measures Include:


Following all guidance and requirements for state and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) to ensure optimal patient, family and staff safety


Residents are monitored and screened regularly


Teammates and guests wear masks throughout their shifts/visits when required 


Daily Activities

When residents have an engaging social life, they’re able to live more comfortably and productively. Activities give structure which provides them certainty in knowing what’s coming up next; time goes by faster and increases a sense of purpose. There’s also something comforting about having people around who care enough to make your days a little more interesting.

Kind Words

I chose Premier Nursing & Rehab for my brother’s rehabilitation, and after talking with staff and visiting, I was happy and satisfied. Originally, he was supposed to be there for only 20 days, but he loved it and didn’t want to return to his old facility. The staff here are loving, respectful, and caring. Whenever I call and get voicemail, my call is returned promptly. My brother has gained weight and says he enjoys his meals. The facility is clean, and my brother’s room stays neat and clean. I highly recommend this facility. Thanks, Premier staff, for taking care of my brother.
