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.
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.
At Princeton Health Care Center, we provide a home away from home for people who don’t need to be in a hospital but cannot be cared for at home. We are much more than a nursing home by offering skilled nursing services in a long-term care community. Our staff engages with you as if you were family, friends or neighbors. Here’s a brief look at what we offer.
Long Term Care
Our 120-bed long-term care center and 60-bed Special Care Unit for patients with memory-related diseases and disorders are the centerpiece of all we do. They offer physical, social, and emotional rehabilitation for our residents. Both private and semi-private rooms are available, and of course you or your loved one will be assisted in your daily living and therapeutic needs by our trained staff.

A lack of physical activity can lead to a litany of problems that includes Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular issues, and even premature death. Physical therapy aids in building strength, but can also help with mental acuity, pain management, and staving off surgery. Learn More About Physical Therapy >>
Occupational therapy rebuilds range of motion and fine motor skills that may have been impacted by illness, age, or disorder. This improves mental well-being, contributes to independent living, and helps seniors live happier and more productive lives. Learn More About Occupational Therapy >>
Our speech language pathologists aid with recovery from a variety of medical conditions — including stroke, traumatic brain injury, cancers, and others — that lead to difficulty with speech and swallowing. Learn More About Speech Therapy >>

Our social workers act as advocates for our residents. They assist them in finding and maintaining their physical, social, and mental equilibrium. Learn More About Social Services >>
We take pride in having one of the largest and most dynamic activities departments in the entire state. Our Activities Department balances individual and group activities against the skills, needs, abilities, and interests of each resident, ensuring they are occupied and engaged.

Intravenous therapy, or infusion therapy, is direct intravenous delivery of fluids, antibiotics, or medications. We offer this for care that requires high, frequent, and precise dosing that cannot effectively be addressed by oral medications. Learn More About IV Therapy >>
Chronic pain isn’t merely a quality of life issue. It leads to observable ill effects in a patient’s psychological and physical well-being. We determine — and address — the source of pain as part of a comprehensive approach to patient care. Learn More About Pain Management >>
Respiratory illnesses and disorders can arise in any season of life. Our team-based approach covers diagnostics, treatment options, and often interfacing with other specialists to improve health and quality of life. Learn More About Respiratory Care >>
Age, especially in combination with certain medical conditions like immune disorders or diabetes, can interfere in wound healing and cause severe complications. Our multi-pronged approach to wound healing aims to restore health and function in complex cases. Learn More About Wound Management >>
We firmly believe in a life lived with dignity, and everything we do is geared toward that end. However, we also recognize that a time comes in many individuals’ lives when the balance must shift from curing to caring. Our hospice services help individuals and their families are surrounded in care even to the last heartbeat. Learn More About Hospice Care >>
All residents deserve meals that are as delicious as they are nutritionally sound. To that end, we have an on-staff dietician and dietary consultant on staff. They assess individual patients’ needs to ensure appropriate nutrition — including therapeutically or mechanically-altered diets where needed. Learn More About Nutritional Consultants >>
