About Us

a reputation for compassion and competence

Princeton Health Care Center has a long history of serving the skilled nursing needs of Princeton, WV, Mercer County, WV and the surrounding area. We welcomed our first resident in June of 1981, opened the state’s first dementia care unit in 1989, and have continued to evolve the services and standard of care offered in the years since. Princeton Health Care Center is proud to be an independent, not-for-profit organization.

We received Medicare and Medicaid certification in 2005. We take pride in the work we do, and in providing our residents state-of-the-art care delivered with warmth and compassion. Our campus is in a scenic country setting and conveniently located in relation to Princeton Community Hospital and other healthcare providers.
