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. The Lighthouse was born when they set out on a mission to establish a facility that would provide an exceptional level of care to accident victims after their son, Jamie, was in an auto accident and they were unable to find a facility that provided the level of care they were looking for.

The Lighthouse Rehabilitation Center has two locations to serve you.  Our locations in Caro, Michigan & Traverse City Michigan offer physical therapy, occupational therapy, recreational therapy, speech therapy, music therapy, social work, psychology, vocational services and much more!
