Care Center

Nelson County Health System believes in the worth of every individual and that each is unique with their own particular strengths and needs. We believe that the quality of life for every human being is dependent upon the person's physical, social, mental, emotional, and spiritual well being.

NCHS Care Center is a 39 bed Skilled Nursing Facility, licensed/certified under Medicare and Medicaid, providing care under the direction of our Medical Director Dr. Berg, Dr. Martinson and Darlene Kelly, ARNP.

Our qualified staff, consisting of Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, Certified Medication Aides, and Certified Nursing Assistants, work cooperatively with physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social services, dietary, and activity personnel to provide individualized personal care to each resident's physical, mental, and psychosocial needs.

In 2019, NCHS Care Center became MUSIC & MEMORY® certified so we can work with residents to create a powerful personalized music program.  This program has many therapeutic benefits such as giving pleasure to those with dementia, increases cooperation and attention while reducing resistance to care, reduces agitation and much more!
