​Cedars Nursing Care Center's rich color and texture of exterior materials confers a home-like quality, while the sparkling atrium lobby, infused with natural daylight, heralds its welcoming entry. Cedars, a state-of-the-art 99-bed Long Term Care Facility, was featured in the Designs For Aging 1992 Review, the first national review and exhibition of significant architectural design trends for the aging, co-sponsored by the American Institute of Architects and the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging. 

The Skilled Nursing Center stands majestically, welcoming visitors as it symbolically gestures with outstretched arms and Temple-like Porte Cochere. The number ten, representing the Ten Commandments, the ten branches of the Sefirot, and quorum of a Minyan, are symbolized by the ten sections of the building plan and ten front window sections of the Main Entry Lobby façade.
