Life Care Center of Hixson, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility, is welcoming a new director of nursing, Molly Findley.

“I love it here,” said Findley. “People have the luxury of recuperating in an atmosphere of beauty with a family of caregivers who genuinely care. The staff is warm, professional and fun to work with.”

Before stepping into this leadership role, Ms. Findley served as director of nursing at Spring City Care and Rehabilitation Center in Spring City, Tenn.
