A Tradition of Service

Owned and operated by the Pezzelli Family, Golden Crest is a 152-bed, skilled nursing facility providing comprehensive skilled nursing care, rehabilitation programs, and complex medical services. Among these are Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapies, Alzheimer’s Care, Hospice and Respite Care.

Founded by Pat and Norma Pezzelli, Golden Crest Nursing Centre was Rhode Island’s very first skilled nursing facility when it first opened in 1969. At that time, it was recognized throughout the region as the most advanced facility of its type ever constructed.

Now in its 50th year of operation, Golden Crest Nursing Centre remains a leader in the industry. With its Joint Commission Accreditation, the gold standard of health care facilities, it has a proud tradition of staying at the forefront of nursing and rehabilitative care. This is the product of a devoted, caring staff, and an ownership committed to providing residents and rehab clients with the very best nursing and restorative services available.
