ROCKY MOUNT — Carrolton of Nash, a skilled nursing facility, has welcomed experienced health care administrator Julia Batts to its helm.

“We are thrilled that Julia has chosen to join our team,” said Sonya Rozier, managing director for parent company Carrolton Facility Management. “She fills one of the most important positions at this facility. Her enthusiasm, knowledge and love of patients and team members makes her the perfect choice to help us continue to grow and offer extraordinary care to our patients.”

Most recently, Batts was a nursing home administrator at the Brian Center Health & Rehabilitation in Goldsboro, where she increased the facility’s overall and quality measurement ratings and received the 2021 AHCA Bronze Quality and the 2020 Pinnacle Quality Excellence in Service awards.

She holds a master’s degree in public health with a concentration in administration from East Carolina University’s Brody School of Medicine and a Bachelor of Science in multidisciplinary studies with a concentration in neuroscience and a Bachelor of Arts in psychology, both from ECU.

“I have extensive experience in the long-term care setting,” said Batts, “and believe that my journey has shaped me to be able to provide the best experience possible to our patients while they are receiving care at Carrolton of Nash.”

Her duties include leadership of the interdisciplinary team members, management of the daily facility operations, maintaining the center’s local, state and federal regulatory compliance and upholding the company’s mission and values.

On Oct. 1, Carrolton Facility Management took ownership of the former Hunter Hills Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Rocky Mount and renamed it Carrolton of Nash. The company says the rebranding was more than a name change.

“Carrolton of Nash is committed to providing its residents with the highest quality of skilled care available in the area,” a news release states.

Carrolton of Nash is part of the Carrolton Facility Management family of nursing homes owned by the Roberson-Powell families. The company has recently opened additional nursing facilities in Dunn, Fayetteville, Lumberton, Plymouth and Williamston.
