About Us

Since 1964, Oceana County Medical Care Facility has been serving the long and short-term care and rehabilitation needs of our residents and patients.

Under the supervision of a skilled nursing staff, our 115-bed county-owned facility provides a home-like atmosphere and 24-hour care to each and every resident. A regular schedule of unique and personally-tailored day-to-day activities promotes involvement and improves the quality of our residents’ lives.

Coupled with our Person-Centered Care approach, our skilled nursing facility offers exceptional comfort and a friendly and welcoming environment where residents can feel at-home.



“Through the efforts of our employees, Oceana County Medical Care Facility provides high-quality skilled nursing and related human services to all qualified persons in a professional, sensitive, and courteous manner and in partnership with other care providers.”




Plans to build the Oceana County Medical Care Facility were voted on and passed by Oceana County residents in 1963. The original 53-bed facility was built on an 8-acre lot adjacent to the Oceana Hospital and opened officially in 1964.


Oceana County Medical Care Facility’s first expansion added 60 additional beds to the facility in a brand-new wing. The renovation also saw the construction of additional administration offices, therapy departments, a new dining area, and expanded kitchen space.


A renovation in 2001 added walk-in refrigeration and additional preparation and pantry space to the existing kitchen. Later, in 2005, subsequent projects resulted in the construction of an outpatient therapy and aquatic clinic, administrative offices, and additional storage space.

Also in 2005, The Margaret D. Fuehring Memorial Care Center, an 18-bed Alzheimer’s unit was completed. This wing was funded in part by the generous donations of Rudy Fuehring, in memory of his dear wife Margaret.


Over the course of four large construction phases between 2016 and 2017, all remaining resident care units were completely renovated into private and semi-private resident rooms. Additionally, a bistro-style dining area within the main resident dining room was constructed, dayrooms and resident activity areas were expanded, and a short-term rehab therapy wing was built.
