About Rockwood at Whitworth:
Acquired in 1999, this 8-acre park-like setting is located on the north side of Spokane and was formally known as Rockwood Hawthorne. In 2020, the name was changed to Rockwood at Whitworth as part of a complete renovation and because of Rockwood’s commitment to provide the best, most innovative senior living experience in the Inland Northwest. This name also is a nod to our unique relationship with Whitworth University. Palvella Glen is our Assisted Living and Memory Support building. Hawthorne Court includes independent homes and duplexes. Once the revitalization is complete, Rockwood at Whitworth will have another new building for Independent Living and a whole host of new amenities, dining, and fitness center.
