ONRC name changed to Odebolt Specialty Care
To the editor: I want to take this opportunity to make the community aware of our recent name change to Odebolt Specialty Care (formerly Odebolt Nursing and Rehab Center). In an effort to better align with our sister locations throughout Iowa and to provide a united front as a leading statewide rehabilitation services, skilled nursing care, long-term care and hospice care organization, we have changed our local name to better reflect the breadth of services we provide. We retain the same ownership and management team.
Like most post-acute care providers, Odebolt Specialty Care offers rehabilitation services, skilled nursing care, long-term care and hospice care, all under one roof. For most post-acute care providers, gone are the days of just being a “nursing home.” While caring for elderly residents of our community is still a main focus of the service we provide, our industry has changed. Healthcare and resident care has changed. We continue to change with it.
As the administrator of Odebolt Specialty Care, I want to thank our community for the support we continually receive from volunteers, school children, businesses and families and friends of our residents. We are proud to be a part of this community.
- Nancy Snyder, Administrator
