The Meadows at Lawrence and Lawrence Rehab & Healthcare Share 40-Acre Campus 

LAWRENCE TWP., N.J. (May 16, 2024) The Meadows at Lawrence and Lawrence Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center have been named among the nation’s top skilled nursing facilities in Newsweek’sAmerica’s Best Nursing Homes 2024.” The two distinct skilled nursing centers are part of the 40-acre Lawrence healthcare campus in Lawrence Township.  

Located at 1 Bishops Drive, the 120-bed Lawrence Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center provides post-hospital, short-term rehab and long-term residential care. The 60-bed Meadows at Lawrence, on Morris Hall Circle Drive, features 60 long-term care beds. The Meadows’ six residential long-term care cottages were built around the green house residential skilled nursing model.  

“In addition to being named among America’s best nursing homes, The Meadows and Lawrence Rehab & Healthcare received a Top 10 ranking in New Jersey,” said Erin Popelak, regional director of market development at Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports the Lawrence campus. “Our congratulations to the teams from both centers on this well-deserved recognition.” 

Newsweek, in partnership with global data research firm Statista Inc., identified the nation’s top 750 facilities across 25 states for its “America’s Best Nursing Homes 2024.” The rankings are based on five data sources, including performance data, peer recommendations, management of the COVID-19 situation and accreditations; for the first time, resident satisfaction data was added to the scoring model.    

The Lawrence healthcare campus has a rich legacy, having been in operation for decades. In addition to the two distinct skilled nursing components, it includes assisted living at The Terraces at Lawrence and houses Lawrence Rehabilitation Hospital. A campus-wide modernization and programming enhancement is underway.  More information can be found at
