Our Long Term Care Nursing Home is part of the Kearney County Health Services campus. It is a short and long-term, residential health care facility that provides nursing care in an atmosphere of respect  and concern for each individual resident.

The Nursing Home was opened in 1971and has 34 private and semi- private rooms, a spacious dining room and and best of all Minden Medical Clinic and Kearney County Hospital share the same campus so emergency services are immediately available.

Ancillary Services

Since the facility is attached to the Hospital, Laboratory and X-ray departments, as well as the Minden Medical Clinic, residents have easy access to specialty clinics such as cardiology, urology, podiatry and orthopedic services. KCHS providers can provide on-site diagnoses and treatment. If hospitalization is necessary it is just a few minutes away.
