South Hills Rehabilitation Center

About Us
At South Hills, we strive to care for the total needs of our residents. We understand that residents have individual physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs when planning their care and encourage and welcome input, involvement and support from the residents and their families. United, we strive for the optimum level of function for our resident while simultaneously incorporating their rights to self-determination.

We are proud of our interdisciplinary rehabilitation program, which encourages independence and activity, assisting each person in developing new skills and relearning old ones.  We are very proud to provide post-acute care for patients who require a higher level of clinical oversight.

Becky Conrad, Administrator
Becky started her career with Pinnacle at Corvallis Manor in 1998. Later, after receiving her bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Walla Walla University, she returned to Pinnacle to train to become an Administrator. Becky has worked in various support positions throughout Pinnacle since receiving her administrator's license in 2006, including working at South Hills in 2007 as Assistant Administrator. In 2013, she rejoined the team at South Hills as Administrator. What she enjoys most about working at South Hills is spending time with the residents and staff. She believes the team at South Hills is unique and is best known for providing excellent care and serving delicious food.

Carolyn Eden, RN, Director of Nursing Services
Carolyn has spent the majority of her professional career at South Hills Rehabilitation Center, where she began as a certified nursing assistant in 1981 and steadily advanced her career. In 2010, after a two-year stint as a resident care manager at another Pinnacle facility, Green Valley Rehabilitation Health Center, Carolyn accepted the director of nursing position at South Hills.

She says she loves her relationships with long-term residents as they share stories and laughs.  And she says her co-workers have been together for so many years that they feel like family.  Carolyn earned an associate of science degree at Lane Community College and she later returned to earn her nursing degree there in 2006.  Much of Carolyn's free time is spent keeping her six dogs entertained.
