“Where Care Is Focused On The Individual”


PAHCS now has four senior housing facilities: Hilltop Care Center in Watkins, and 700 Stearns Place, Koronis Manor and Washburne Court in Paynesville.

700 STEARNS PLACE: Open since 1988, 700 Stearns Place has 30 one-and two-bedroom apartments ranging in size from 520 to 861 square feet, including several wheelchair-accessible units. Designed with your comfort and needs in mind, all of our apartments feature a charming bay window, tasteful décor, and many other amenities: complete kitchen, bath with shower, roomy closets and storage space, dining and living room areas.

One of the many benefits of being in close proximity to a larger health system is convenient access to all medical services. You can walk down the hall to your clinic or hospital appointments without worrying about the weather. And if emergency care is needed, PAHCS’ staff of physicians and nurses are right there to assist you.

WASHBURNE COURT To meet the growing need for assisted living in Paynesville and the surrounding communities, PAHCS has recently renovated Washburne Court into a beautiful 24-unit assisted living facility. Formerly known as the Good Samaritan Care Center, Washburne Court is ideal for individuals who may need assistance with some activities of daily living but don’t need all the skilled services in a nursing facility. This setting is designed with your needs in mind…safety and security AND independence and choices.
