Clarkson Health Care

1015 Mountain View Rd, Rapid City, SD 57702

Located on the west side of Rapid City, Clarkson Health Care Facility offers another choice of service for residents of the community. Purchased by Westhills Village in 2000, Clarkson has been renovated and upgraded to the beautiful, well-equipped facility it is today. It is state-licensed and Medicare approved. Long and short term stays are provided in private accommodations.

The main focus at Clarkson Health Care Facility is rehabilitation. Thanks to our superb rehabilitation programs, a very high percentage of our residents return to independent living settings. Residents are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities, outings, and events planned to meet each individual's creative, spiritual, recreational, and social needs. A comfortable and nurturing environment welcomes all guests.

A professional nurse is on duty 24 hours a day and our Medical Director is directly involved in facility operations. A Social Services Coordinator, Activity Director, Director of Nursing, Therapist, and Dietary Aide meet regularly with each Resident and his or her family. This Plan of Care meeting ensures that the specific needs of all Residents are met as effectively as possible.

"On behalf of our family, I wanted to thank you for the outstanding care that your staff provided for our father over the past 18 months. Our parents both needed care during their final years, and our experience with the care of our parents different greatly. The care, comfort, and compassion provided day-in and day-out by the healthcare professionals at Clarkson was simply amazing.  From the warm greeting at every visit, to accommodating our father’s needs with grace, respect, and compassion, the Clarkson organization provided unparalleled service.  Our sincere appreciation for everything!"

"What I appreciate about Clarkson, (beside excellent care) is the proactive communication and updates from the friendly nursing staff. In comparison to a couple of other skilled care facilities Al has experienced in AZ, yours is superior."
