I have been so pleased with the care I received and the therapy was wonderful. I'm so much better prepared to go home. I would recommend anyone needing rehab to this facility.

Forget all the stereotypes of nursing homes - this place rocks! The food is good, everything is spic and span, concern for safety and infection control - no shortcuts. Every single encounter with ever staff was caring, competent, compassionate. The therapist treated us (family members) like we were part of the team and was interested in our success. God bless them!

NorthCrest Specialty Care

I had four major surgeries at 2 different hospitals before going to Northcrest. Right away I met very helpful and nice people that made me feel comfortable and cared for.  They explained what they were doing and why, while making me feel at home. The people at Northcrest and Care Initiatives do really care. Hats off to all of you!

On behalf of all of our family, I want to thank you and all the staff for the excellent care for XXXXX during his time with you. Everyone was always so kind, loving, helpful and compassionate. We know he was well cared for. I appreciate that I was called with reports of even the littlest things concerning his care and health. We trusted all of you to give him your best.

The nursing team is amazing and so VERY compassionate to residents and their families. The administration staff is helpful, kind and truly genuine in their desire to help families and their loved ones. I never considered any of the staff as my co-workers...they are my friends and I loved working with them all.

From the moment I walked into Southern Hills I knew this was the place for Mom. Thank you for the love you gave her and sharing your memories with me. I am deeply grateful for all you have done.

We can never thank (Sioux City Hospice volunteer Brian) enough for all the TLC you gave Betsy at the nursing home. If anyone has wings on this Earth, it’s definitely you. And now you have a special angel in Heaven watching over you, and that angel is Betsy!

...thanks again for all your team did for (my mom) while she was there.  I'm so grateful that she was well cared for and has a very good taste in her mouth about her experience.  She even liked the food!  Her care team of nurses, aides, therapy, and such all treated her very well.
