Receive Advanced Respiratory Care in Eau Claire

For over 26 years, the community has come to know and count on access to a wide range of capabilities and the experienced nursing team at Dove Healthcare – West Eau Claire.

In July 2023, we expanded access to advanced respiratory care with the opening of a specialized, 8-bed tracheostomy care unit for short-term or long-term care.

Supported by a higher staff ratio, we care for those with chronic respiratory needs and complex medical conditions, including IVs, tube feedings, and wound care. You can count on quality, compassionate care from our multidisciplinary care team.
