The rebranding of The Grand Rehabilitation and Nursing at Barnwell will begin with new interior and exterior signage and new uniforms for staff. Guests will also have access to hospitality features offered at other Grand properties such as a personalized menu, concierge service, courtesy shuttle service and iPad program to communicate with family and loved ones any time of day or night.
