We recognize that our greatest and most valuable asset in providing quality care is our staff.

Working as a nurse, nursing assistant, housekeeper, or facility employee can be a rewarding job. The dedicated employees at the Silver Ridge Healthcare Center are what make it possible for us to establish and maintain the high standards for which we strive. Each employee, no matter what their job title is, plays an important role within the facility.

Our ability to provide for the needs of your loved ones comes from a team of committed and dedicated professionals. Each employee takes great pride in his or her work and desire for individual resident care. We encourage each resident daily to reach his/her highest practicable level of ability through training and praise. Many of our staff members have remained employed with us since opening in 1999.
