Learn more about the rich history of Cedar Haven. Though Cedar Haven’s roots in our community go back 187 years, Cedar Haven has changed and improved along with advances in medical care and senior care services. Today, Cedar Haven is a 5-star rated skilled nursing facility that provides high-quality skilled nursing, therapy, memory care, and hospice services to improve the overall wellness and quality of life of our residents.
Cedar Haven has been part of the history and fabric of Lebanon County since March 3, 1830, when an Act of the Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania provided for a Lebanon County Poor House. In 1830, the initial facility was home to 12 residents.
Between 1887 and 1889, a new hospital was built, consisting of approximately a dozen buildings. In 1937 the facility became known as the County Institutional District under the direction of the County Commissioners.
In 1964 the corner stone was laid for a new structure immediately adjacent to the city of Lebanon. The 244 bed facility was occupied in January of 1966 with the transfer of approximately 160 patients from the former “Poor House” farm. The new County Home was named Cedar Haven. Very shortly after its inception it was completely occupied with 244 residents and a substantial number of applicants on the waiting list. In May of 1973 ground was broken for the new Skilled Care Wing, making provision for 160 additional beds and enhanced adequate ancillary services to provide only the very best care for the elderly of Lebanon County.
In 2014, the Lebanon County Commissioners voted to sell Cedar Haven to Cedar Haven Acquisition, LLC, a subsidiary company of Stone Barn Holdings. The Stone Barn team is made up of experienced long-term care facility owners and operators who are committed to improving quality of care and life for Cedar Haven residents. Cedar Haven is one of the many county-owned nursing facilities in Pennsylvania which have been privatized in order to improve quality of care and financial sustainability for the future. Under the new owners, the number of employees has increased, wages have increased, and the County taxpayers are no longer financially supporting the facility. The new 5-Star rating and deficiency-free survey results are a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Cedar Haven staff. In 2016, we celebrated 50 years of providing care under the name of “Cedar Haven” at our current location. We look forward to providing quality care for the Lebanon community for many years to come.
