Washington County Nursing Home
Providing Quality Health Care to Rural Colorado
Washington County Nursing Home is an important part of the health services supported by our county. The facility is county-owned, not-for-profit, and quality care is our priority. The facility is small and the staff strive to provide a home-like atmosphere. We offer all the services of the larger facilities in northeast Colorado but on a smaller scale, where every resident is a member of "our family." For more information, please contact us for admission criteria, current rates, and a tour of our facility.

  Admitting a family member to a nursing home is never an easy decision to make. It usually happens during a time of crisis which makes the process even more stressful. We are committed to helping you and your loved ones in the difficult days of transition from hospital or home to our community. We strive to provide a home away from home, offering choice in daily routine and meals, providing a place for "living" supported by good medical and nursing care.

Each person is considered for admission based upon their medical and psychological needs and the services we can provide.

Each person is considered without regard to race, creed, sex, age, social status, or pay source. We are Medicare and Medicaid certified.

Our Home

We strive to make our community a place of warmth and welcome for everyone who lives, works, visits or volunteers here. While our home-like furnishings, sunny gardens and cozy social areas create an inviting setting, the true sense of community is created by the people who come within our walls. Treating all who enter our home with dignity and respect is our number one priority. We recognize that all people have potential for growth, no matter what age or stage of life.

Our Staff

Our caring and committed staff make the difference. Our employees know that each resident is a unique individual with differing need and goals. They understand the importance of a kind word, a gentle touch and the healing power of a smile.
