The History of Asbury Place Kingsport
Over 30 Years of Service
Asbury Place Kingsport was founded in 1989 to support the growing demand that seniors had in the area for an engaging retirement community to call home. This senior living community located in the Tri-Cities, Tenn. region, was the second continuing care retirement community created by Asbury Place, Inc., which was established in 1956 with the development of Asbury Place Maryville. Carved into the foothills of the beautiful Bays mountain, Asbury Place Kingsport provides seniors living in the Kingsport, Johnson City, and Bristol area and beyond with an engaging lifestyle and maintenance-free living on our Baysmont campus.
We’ve continued to adapt to the changing needs of seniors with innovative programming and initiatives. The Steadman Hill campus supports residents in need of assisted living and memory care services.
In 2016 we became a regional leader by adding new skilled nursing, assisted living and memory support neighborhoods built on the household model – where residences are built in the style of a private home. Our 30-year history is built on realizing that our work is never done, that there is always one more opportunity to do all the good we can for those we serve.
