Mission, Vision, and History

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 - Barron
Dove Healthcare - Bloomer
Dove Healthcare - Osseo
Dove Healthcare - Rice Lake
Dove Healthcare - South Eau Claire
Dove Healthcare - West Eau Claire
Dove Healthcare - Wissota Health & Regional Vent Center

Four assisted living facilities:

Dove Healthcare - Barron
Dove Healthcare - Osseo
Dove Healthcare - Orchard Hills Assisted Living
Dove Healthcare - Rutledge Home

One rehabilitation company:

Transitions Rehabilitation

Our talented and diverse workforce of 800 employees serves an average of 360 residents and patients every day.

Dove Healthcare - West Eau Claire, our first acquisition in 1997, is licensed for 160 beds and is located on Truax Boulevard in Eau Claire. This facility specializes in skilled nursing, short-term rehabilitation, long-term care, and end-of-life care.

Dove Healthcare - Orchard Hills Assisted Living opened inside Dove Healthcare - West Eau Claire in 1999 and then a new 26-unit facility was built attached to it in 2005. A second expansion in 2008 brought total capacity of Dove Healthcare - Orchard Hills Assisted Living to 39 studio apartments.

Dove Healthcare - Rutledge Home, a 92-bed skilled nursing facility in Chippewa Falls, was added as a third affiliate in 2004.

Dove Healthcare - Wissota Health & Regional Vent Center, a 135-bed skilled nursing facility with 36 certified ventilator beds, was purchased as a fourth affiliate in late 2005.

In early 2007, Dove Healthcare - Rutledge Home merged operations with Dove Healthcare - Wissota Health & Regional Vent Center. The merger allowed for more efficient operations at both Chippewa Falls facilities. Since then, Dove Healthcare - Rutledge Home has been transitioned into a 63-unit assisted living facility, with its primary focus on Memory Care. In addition to featuring the Regional Vent Center, Dove Healthcare - Wissota Health specializes in the same services as Dove Healthcare - West Eau Claire.

Dove Healthcare - South Eau Claire opened in September 2009 on Mall Drive in Eau Claire. The 50-bed, state-of-the-art skilled nursing facility, featuring aquatic therapy and exercise, is an expansion of our Transitions Rehabilitation program.

Transitions Rehabilitation consists of 65 licensed therapists that provide services to all of our locations. We have invested heavily in our staff, therapy gyms, and equipment to ensure our patients receive the most advanced and progressive treatment.

In October 2015, Dove Healthcare became the licensed operator of Mayo Clinic Health System nursing homes in Barron, Bloomer, and Osseo, as well as its assisted living facilities in Barron and Osseo. Future plans for these communities include the following:

Dove Healthcare - Rice Lake will open summer 2016. The Dove Healthcare - Barron skilled nursing facility will move its operation into the new Rice Lake facility. All Barron skilled nursing facility residents and employees are invited to move with this transition. The assisted living in Barron (formerly Maplecroft Assisted Living) will continue to operate in its current location.

Dove Healthcare – Osseo is currently a 21-bed nursing home and 14-unit assisted living facility attached to Mayo Clinic Health System – Oakridge in Osseo. A new state-of-the-art, 40-bed skilled nursing facility with attached 24-unit assisted living facility will open in fall 2016, replacing the current facilities. The nursing home provides both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care.

Dove Healthcare – Bloomer is currently a 35-bed skilled nursing facility (formerly Maplewood Nursing Home) attached to Mayo Clinic Health System – Chippewa Valley in Bloomer. A new 40-bed, state-of-the-art skilled nursing facility providing both short-term rehabilitation and long-term care will open in spring 2017, replacing the current facility.

Through the years since Dove Healthcare's origination, it is clear our steady growth is a result of our consistent approach — defining what we do well, doing more of it as often as we can, and growing as our resources allow. We recognize that increasing value and continuously improving quality are essential to maintaining excellence in our facilities.

Our intention is to be the healthcare provider and employer of choice in Northwestern Wisconsin.


Our Mission

As an innovative healthcare provider and community partner, we provide compassionate care and service to meet the needs of those who depend on us. We commit to excellence through adherence to high standards, disciplined leadership, and mutual respect for all.

Our Vision

We strive to be consistently recognized as the provider and employer of choice for skilled nursing and rehabilitation services in our community. As such, we will continue to dedicate resources toward system improvements and new program development in an effort to sustain our leadership role in the long-term care industry.
