The Knox County Nursing Home District was established in 1969 as a not for profit “political subdivision” governed by elected volunteer board members, and supported by local taxes. Our original building was erected in 1971. In October of 2013 we began an extensive project, adding a new addition and remodeling the existing building. These improvements have made our health care facility unlike any other nursing home in our region.
The Knox County Nursing Home District is licensed as a 60 bed Skilled Nursing Facility, providing both short term rehab and long term care. We are certified by the federal Medicare program as well as the Missouri Health Net (Medicaid) and we accept private pay. Our focus is on taking excellent care of our residents, rather than generating large profits.
Extraordinary is the word we use to describe our success. We encourage you to explore our website and see what we have to offer. Better yet, stop by for a tour. We think you will be glad you did!
