Lighthouse Mission Statement:


Lighthouse seeks to provide phenomenal care, treating every resident and client as we wanted our son to be treated. -Dorothea Wilson


The Lighthouse Rehabilitation Center was founded in 1987 by Jim and Dorothea Wilson when they set out on a mission to establish a facility that would provide an extraordinary level of care after their son, Jamie, was in an auto accident and they were unable to find a facility that provided the level of care they wanted for him.
