Welcome to West Ridge

Whether you are looking for short-term rehabilitation or long-term care, one visit to West Ridge Care Center Cedar Rapids, IowaWest Ridge and you’ll see the difference our philosophies and treatment can make. West Ridge Care Center is a licensed nursing facility offering skilled care to Medicare and private pay residents. Since opening in 1992, West Ridge has established itself as one of the finest nursing care facilities in the area. We have been listed in the US News & World Report annual ranking of the nation’s best nursing homes in 2014 and 2015. In 2014, West Ridge Care Center was also recognized as a 2014 recipient of the Bronze National Quality Award from the American Health Care Association (AHCA) and National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) and received a 4 Star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service.

West Ridge is a privately owned, single entity facility. We host 58 private rooms as well as an “almost-home” suite that offers our short-term residents an opportunity to ease back into living independently. Most recently, we renovated all of our private rooms to include WiFi and flat screen tvs along with the other available amenities.

We recognize from the beginning that private rooms provide a much more comfortable and home-like environment for our Elders and their families. Private rooms can help alleviate some of the anxiety that typically occurs when a person requires the services of a nursing care facility.

While we cannot reverse the course of aging, we can assist our Elders to be as comfortable and independent as possible in the home-like setting West Ridge provides. Our Elders love living at West Ridge. Our highly qualified and compassionate staff is committed to the dignity of life and it shows in the smiles of our Elders.
