The D. Scott Hudgens Center for Skilled Nursing at Annandale Village provides adults facing increasing limitations due to aging or features of their disability nationally recognized care specific to their developmental disability or diagnosis, and is the only nursing home in the state of Georgia whose staff is specifically trained to care for adults with developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injuries. The center offers specialized person-centered care, as well as, therapy, dietary focused plans, and a wide range of therapeutic programs both on and off campus to individuals diagnosed with down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism, other intellectual being, or traumatic brain injury.
In 2000, thanks to a trans-formative donation from the D. Scott Hudgens Family Foundation, Annandale Village established the D. Scott Hudgens Center for Skilled Nursing, allowing Annandale to provide a continuum of service for adults with developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injuries.
Beginning as a 16 bed skilled nursing facility, in the spring of 2012 the D. Scott Hudgens Center for Skilled Nursing embarked on the beginning stages of expanding the center from 16 to 32 beds, thanks to generous donations made through Annandale Village’s “Help For Today, Hope For Tomorrow” 2.1 million dollar capital campaign. This expansion allows the Center to reach a new level of excellence and increase its capacity to serve the ever-expanding disability population.
The Center’s focus on providing its residents with the highest level of care has been acknowledged by receiving the prestigious “five-star” ranking U.S. News & World Report’s annual Best Nursing Homes, for 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Of more than 15,500 nursing homes in the United States, the Center ranks highest among all nursing homes in the state of Georgia, and is the only nursing home in Gwinnett County to be awarded the five-star rating. Today, the D. Scott Hudgens Center for Skilled Nursing is the only nursing home in Georgia whose staff is specially trained to care for adults with developmental disabilities. With the current expansion, the Center continues to grow and provide greater services to men and women with developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injuries.
