History


Uintah Care Center was first built as a 52 bed nursing center in 1983 and then acquired by Uintah County in 1987. The Adult Day Center was added on in 1993. In 2000 the County created the Uintah Health Care Special Service District and appointed a Controlling Board of volunteer community members. In 2002 the Nursing Center was expanded by 58 beds and the 1983 construction was refurbished. The Nursing Center now includes 110 beds.

 

The Administrator, Wayne Dunbar, has over 26 years experience with managing Care Centers.

 

The Director of Nursing, Terri Rimer, has been with the Care Center for over 25 years and is a registered nurse.
