In the 1950s, a group of Union County citizens led by Judge Frank Hudson and Louis Hurley began plans to build a nursing home to serve the needs of senior citizens in the area. A Board of Directors was appointed and given the task of building Hudson Memorial Nursing Home as well as negotiating with the Rosedale Mennonite Board to provide personnel to staff our home.
On January 3, 1960, a dedication service was held with nearly 500 people in attendance. The following morning, Mr. Julius Meek became the first resident admitted to our modern, 60-bed facility. In 1971, an addition was built with 50 beds, a new laundry room, a beauty shop, an activity room and a storage area. By January 2010, 50 years after our grand opening, Hudson Memorial Nursing Home served as a home for over 1,700 residents. Today, we continue to provide excellent nursing care and jobs for approximately 140 employees.
When I need nursing care, this is where I want to be.
I have been very pleased for the last three years with the care my mother has received at Hudson. I feel the staff not only takes care of my mother, but they love her.
I just love it here. The staff and therapists truly care about me.
