Iowa City Rehab and Health Care Center has been serving families from Iowa City since 1967. We also take care of our neighbors throughout Johnson County, Iowa. Our nursing home team works every day to create a healing environment and uplifting atmosphere so residents can focus on achieving their highest level of health. You'll find a special combination of hometown compassion with clinical knowledge and skills.
"I love you guys — everyone is so nice to me here and helps me with my goals."
We're pleased to announce that our team recently received the American Health Care Association National Quality Award Program Commitment to Quality Bronze Award.
If you've had a hospital stay as a result of an illness or injury and need short-term rehabilitation, why not transition to your home right in your home community? Find out more about Medicare benefits in the Official Medicare Handbook (pdf).
For those you may know who are no longer able to care for themselves at home let us help them create a home at Iowa City Rehab and Health Care Center with long-term care.
There are more than 450,000 family and friend caregivers in Iowa, many in our local communities. Our respite service is designed for those who need assistance while their primary caregiver gets much needed rest, takes time off or may be unable to provide care for a short period of time.
There are times when a patient no longer benefits from curative treatment. In these instances we work closely with community hospice specialists to provide compassionate care so the individual can live as fully and comfortably as possible at the end of life.

- 24-hour skilled nursing care

We believe an important part of successful therapy is the positive relationship between therapist and patient. Our therapists challenge, encourage, motivate and support patients as they set and work toward their goals. Therapy services are available seven days a week. Our short-stay program is designed to help patients heal, gain strength and transition home.
