About Us

Our History

In 1973, the Linn Community Nursing Home, a community owned, not for profit nursing home was constructed in Linn Kansas. It was formed by the churches in the Linn area and is still operated by a board of

member representatives from those churches and the local Linn Booster Club. It was created to provide a home

for those in need of compassionate, professional and loving care.

Our Purpose

Linn Community Nursing Home is a community owned, not for profit, comprehensive skilled nursing facility. 


We specialize in care and daily living assistance to an array of individuals. Whether you need assistance due to aging, illness, recovery, or rehabilitation, we will provide individualized services that you can trust. 


We provide 24 hour medical care and support services to our Residents. Through community resource collaboration and support to our families, we strive to ensure our Residents achieve
