In the early 1970s, members from three Little River churches – The Congregational, United Methodist and Holy Trinity Catholic – addressed an unmet need in the community: providing dignified, long-term care for the people who contributed to the success of this community. A hospital district was formed and in 1972, Sandstone Heights nursing home opened its doors. Owned by hospital district patrons and managed by an elected Board of Directors, Sandstone Heights is a major local employer that provides numerous volunteer opportunities to support our neighbors who now live on our campus.

The mission of Sandstone Heights is to provide services to its residents that will enhance the quality of life by:

• Providing the best possible resident care at the least possible cost to the resident in accordance with the highest standards of professional service.

• Continuing the expansion of resident services and care so that every individual is treated as a whole person.

• Working cooperatively with the community to meet the ever-changing needs of our residents.
