Welcome to Elm Haven West!

Elm Haven West is a 50 bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation
facility, certified for Medicare and Medicaid and licensed by
the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. We offer
rehabilitation services for short or long term care. Respite
and daycare services are also available. We encourage
our resident to be active in making decisions regarding
their medical needs and daily care. In addition a quarterly
care plan meeting is held for each resident and family to
attend. State surveyors visit our facilities annually. They
look at resident care and review records. Their findings
are for public viewing. We will be happy to provide you with
 the State of Kansas Ombudsman phone number and/or
 other regulatory agencies upon request.

Certified for Medicare and Medicaid

Meal times at Elm Haven provide more than just tasty food and good nutrition it also provides social interaction and time to develop new friendships. We always encourage our residents to give us their input, so we can cook as close like home as possible. Our residents have choice with meats and vegetables, kinds of hot or cold cereal, to how they like their eggs cooked. We offer a variety of breads, deserts and even coffee cakes just to mention a few choices.

Develop new Friendships

Our residents have a monthly “residents council” meeting, discussion includes any concerns, events or ideas that residents would like to bring up. One example, the residents requested a salad bar, which they truly enjoy.

Special Care

Our nurses specialize in residents who require difficult medical care. We work daily with people who suffer from diabetes, respiratory problems, dementia, gastro esophageal dysfunction, LG tubes and a variety of other issues on a daily basis. Every day we work with doctors and residents families to best meet individual needs. We also have developed good working relationships with outside companies such as dialysis, wound care, cancer treatment (such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy) and hospices. Our goal is to help residents maintain their highest level of function.


We apply a team approach with all of our departments, dietary, social services, activities and nursing all work together toward one goal for each resident. We hold weekly care planning meetings with residents and family members. We also hold quarterly quality assurance meetings, which include all departments and our medical director Dr. Neil Goodloe.

Cozy and Relaxed

Please feel free to customize your room to suite your style and décor (paint, furniture, decorations). Many of our private rooms have recently had wood laminate floors installed, giving your room a very home like feeling. Our “Solarium Room” is made available to all residents and their family members. This is a wonderful place to have birthday parties, or just spend time visiting. We also have several other large areas for residents and family to gather and spend time together.

Transportation Services Available

One of the services offered is group or individual transportation for our clients at no extra charge. Transportation is available to medical appointments, luncheons, shopping trips, parades, entertainment and community events.

Our transportation fleet includes one bus, one vehicle and three vans. Our bus can accommodate 12 to 14 individuals and two wheelchair passengers. The vans are walk-in wheelchair accessible which accommodates one wheelchair and up to three passengers. We also offer one vehicle for individual transportation needs. We encourage families to accompany their loved ones to appointments.
