The Silvercrest Center opened in 1989 under the sponsorship of Booth Memorial Medical Center and The Salvation Army. Originally named Booth Silvercrest, it took its “first” name from the medical center and the founder of the Salvation Army, General William Booth. The name “Silvercrest” came from the silver crest found on The Salvation Army uniforms.
Today, The Silvercrest Center is renown for its full range of rehabilitative care and sees to the needs of a wide population of complex patients. All of our patients, whether inpatient rehabilitation, outpatient rehabilitation or long-term care, are served well by our excellent clinical staff—board certified physicians, pulmonologists, respiratory therapists, nurse practitioners, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech pathologists.
All of our patients also enjoy a facility that is bright and accessible with special public places that they and their visitors are welcome to explore, including:
- Dining rooms. There is a dining room located on each unit and a large, central one located to the left of the lobby, site to many parties and other activities.
- Lounges. Located opposite the elevators on each unit, these spaces are attractive places to share an intimate conversation with a friend or simply to read a book.
- Meditation room/chapel. This soothing space, located to the right of the elevators on the first floor, is always open to everyone for quiet reflection.
- Outdoor spaces. Silvercrest is fortunate to enjoy a serene setting in a residential neighborhood. In good weather, many patients and visitors gather near the gazebo and waterfall located to the left of the front plaza. There is also a patio outside the main dining room. The Healing Gardens, off of 2 North, are open during certain hours.
