Benefit from a strong history in growth and innovation.
Dove Healthcare is a local healthcare company based in the Chippewa Valley. Since we purchased the Center of Care in 1997 from Eau Claire County and began operating as Dove Healthcare, we have strategically grown within a 60-mile radius of Eau Claire.
Today, Dove Healthcare is comprised of six skilled nursing facilities (Dove Healthcare – Bloomer, Osseo, Rice Lake, South Eau Claire, West Eau Claire, and Wissota Health & Regional Vent Center); five assisted living residences (Dove Healthcare - Barron, Orchard Hills Assisted Living, Osseo, Rutledge Home, and South Eau Claire); and one physical, occupational, and speech therapy company (Transitions Rehabilitation). Our talented and diverse workforce of approximately 1000 employees serves an average of 450 residents and patients every day.
Dove Healthcare - West Eau Claire, our first acquisition in 1997, is licensed for 110 beds and is located on Truax Boulevard in Eau Claire. This facility specializes in skilled nursing, post-hospital, short-term rehabilitation, long-term care, and end-of-life care.
