White Horse Village (WHV), a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), is located on 96 acres in western Delaware County, Pennsylvania, approximately 20 miles west of center city Philadelphia. White Horse Village is a CARF-accredited life care community, granted our fourth five-year re-accreditation in June 2015.
The concept for the Village originated with several entrepreneurs, the White Horse Village Associates, in the mid 1980’s, as a limited proprietary project. The property was the site of a former horse farm. Marketing of the Community began in September of 1986. In May 1987, White Horse Village, Inc. was organized as a Pennsylvania non-profit corporation under Internal Revenue Service section 501(c)(3) with the determination that the corporation is exempt from federal income taxation.
Construction began in May 1988. The project was built in three phases, the first of which was ready for occupancy on August 8, 1989. Today, the Community consists of 335 residential accommodations, a two story Health Care Center containing 59 private skilled nursing rooms and 48 personal care suites along with a 20 room memory support wing.
