Rice Estate’s Bernardin and Rice Estate Skilled Nursing are Medicare-certified, offering residents a caring and home-like environment where their dignity and wishes come first.

Our highly-skilled health professionals get to know each resident personally to understand their wishes, likes, and dislikes. This allows us to provide excellent nursing care tailored to the individual.

With a number of life-enriching programs, activities, and conveniences crafted just for those within long-term care, residents can feel engaged and encouraged each day. Residents can also enjoy trips to our beauty salon and barber shop, or meet friends over a meal. Our dining staff creates customizable menus around special diets to ensure every resident enjoys healthy and delicious cuisine that never disappoints.

Our Healthcare Center is just one provider of care in a network that offers the security of continuing care. Our team partners with Lutheran Hospice, BeWell@Home, and BeWell Home Services to ensure that options are available if and when a resident needs it. Learn about how to become a resident.
