For over four decades, Midland Care has been a pioneer and leader in responding to the most challenging health care needs in our community. Midland Care now offers an integrated community care delivery system addressing social, physical, and spiritual needs, improving quality of life for our aging population to keep seniors at home and independent longer, as a vital part of our community.
We have seen our health care system change with time, but our purpose remains the same.

Together, we ensure that our community’s elders live with dignity, cared for by compassionate people in peaceful surroundings. With your help, we will continue to serve.
