We welcome you to Reidsville and encourage you to explore all we have to offer.

Reidsville Center for Active Retirement Enterprises (RCARE)
RCARE is a Center of Excellence, one of the few in the state with that designation.The center hosts many activities, including trips, bowling, bocce ball, pickleball, shuffleboard, dancing, card games and so much more. Attend an aerobics class or learn how to paint, the opportunities are endless.
Reidsville’s hospital, Annie Penn, was bought out several years ago by Cone Health System. This has allowed our city to grow greatly in the number of doctors and services offered. Healthcare is important and has been a focus of Reidsville and the community through the Kate B. Reynolds Foundation-funded Healthy Places Initiative. Work is being done throughout our community to offer healthy living for our residents. If needs cannot be met locally, then renowned health institutes such as Duke, Baptist and Chapel Hill are just a couple hours away.
