At the heart of VHS' mission is our commitment to providing access to a continuum of long-term care services when families need it. Providing quality nursing for every level of care is the core of our mission. What sets our facility apart is our emphasis on treatment of the entire person - body, mind, and spirit - with equal emphasis.

Helping our residents maintain and/or improve functioning on all levels - physical, psychological and social - through rehabilitation is our goal. Our full-time rehabilitative staff make daily occupational, physical and speech rehabilitation available to our 160 residents when needed to maintain strength and improve the level of function.

- Hip fracture repairs
- Cardiac surgeries
- Knee and hip implants
- Strokes Injuries and falls
- Acute illnesses
- Spine surgeries
- Wound care - in an effort to better serve our residential population with equal emphasis on mind, body and spirit, our nurses are certified in wound and skin care management by the Wound Care Educational Institute. This specialized training prepares our nursing staff to keep current with standards of care practice and make a difference in our patients' lives.
