We'll Still Take You Where You Want to Go

We've Made a Commitment to Southwestern Pennsylvania

Former Farmland Became a Network of Senior Communities

Asbury Heights has been providing quality, compassionate care to older adults for more than 100 years.

Founded in 1908 by Frances Campbell Hamilton, Asbury Heights has grown from an 18-person residence in Dravosburg, Pennsylvania, to a 27-acre, park-like campus in Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania, six miles south of downtown Pittsburgh.

As the needs and demographics of our service area changed, Asbury Heights changed with them. In 1987, we constructed additional independent senior living apartments, a second nursing home living facility and the Asbury Mall. In 1994, we completed the Wesley Hills carriage homes along Bower Hill Road, and in 1997 we added Asbury Place, a secure yet unconfined personal care community for residents needing memory support.

In response to the aging population’s request for a different level of long term care, Asbury Heights added Asbury Villas, personal care apartments, in 2001. With no additional developable land available on Asbury’s main campus, the Board of Directors voted to purchase and renovate The Embassy, an independent senior living luxury apartment building on Beverly Road, in Mt. Lebanon, in 2006.

Today, Asbury Heights continues to meet the ever-changing needs of southwestern Pennsylvania seniors with the continuation of Frances Campbell Hamilton's original mission – to improve the lives of older adults through high-quality and compassionate care.
