Dimondale Nursing Center is a 161 bed, skilled nursing facility that specializes in short term rehab services and long term care for the community. Originally known as Jarvis Acres, the facility was built in 1971 as a retirement community that consisted of a 300 bed home-for-the-aged. The land was donated to the State by the Jarvis family.
In 1976, The Michigan Department of Mental Health leased part of the facility for substance abuse and for psychiatric care. This portion of the facility only lasted until 1981. In 1997 Sparrow Hospital merged with St. Lawrence Hospital bringing the facility into Sparrow’s Health System. On May 1, 2004, Sparrow Health Systems sold the facility to NexCare Health Systems, who re-renamed the nursing home Dimondale Nursing Care Center.
Since the opening in 1971, many changes have taken place within the facility such as re-construction on our hallways creating specific rehab hallways and dining rooms, a new secured memory care unit, updates to our therapy gym, and much more!
