Field Crest Care Center came into existence primarily because a group of concerned, caring, forward looking individuals recognized the need for a local nursing home to serve the community of Hayfield and the surrounding area. In response, Field Crest Care Center opened on February 3,1969.
On February 1, 2000 Crest View Villa, a 20 unit apartment complex opened. Home care services were made available to the residents in May of 2006.
In 2005 Field Crest Assisted Living began provided services in the 9 unit assisted living, for those that didn’t require skilled nursing care, but were not able to live independently.
In August 2021 Crest View Villa was also licensed as a assisted living provider with the state of Minnesota.
Currently, Field Crest Care Center campus has 35 skilled nursing home beds. We also have 29 assisted living units on our campus; 9 at Field Crest Suites and 20 at Crest View Villa. Field Crest Care Center is a city owned, non-profit care center with a Board of Directors, which includes a rotating City Council member.
