The Laurels is committed to effective communication during this unprecedented time in our history. We regularly apprise guests, families, and associates to changes in facility status and policy as needed and as deemed appropriate.

We have been humbled by the support we’ve received from the local community and we truly appreciate everyone’s continued cooperation and understanding. For more information and resources regarding COVID-19, see the COVID-19 Resources page.

The Laurels of Galesburg

A Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

The Laurels of Galesburg - A Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation Center


The Laurels of Galesburg is a distinguished 93-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation center operated by Ciena Healthcare. Located on Interstate 94 at exit 85, just minutes from Kalamazoo and Battle Creek, our picturesque country setting offers a home-like environment that is perfect for quiet time or social activities.

We provide quality short-term rehabilitation along with short-term respite and hospice care. Our rehab program achieves excellent results. Our skilled physical, occupational, and speech therapists work with your physician to design a care plan to get you strong, healthy and back on your way as soon as possible. 

Because we understand that quality of life rests on more than shelter and good medical care, we embrace our long-term guests as members of our own Laurel family. Community outings, movies, visits from school children, pet therapy and events such as our annual Summer Barbecue and Trick-or-Treat Night keep guests engaged, while our caring staff demonstrates daily that each member of our community is important, included, and regarded with respect and compassion. That’s The Laurel Way of Caring, and it’s what we’re known for.

Short-Term Rehab
Short-Term Care

We provide a complete range of services for patients that are unable to return home after a hospitalization. Our programs provide a safe transition from hospital to home with a depth of services that typically can not be provided through home health care or by family members.

Long-Term Care

Extended and long-term care stays are appropriate for individuals that require greater levels of care and support than can be provided at home or within an independent living setting. Our guests typically need assistance with their daily activities due to physical and/or cognitive limitations.

Short-term respite stays offer a family or caregiver a short-term reprieve from the demands of around-the-clock care. Our twenty-four hour nursing care at our skilled nursing facilities assures that all medications are taken on time and any necessary medical treatments are provided.

The Fish Family

“We just want to thank you for all of your hard work.  You were very helpful.  It was a pleasure working with you and it seems as though things will work out eventually.  Thanks again for making this transition so easy for all of us.”


“We have been in a few nursing homes, and this is by far the cleanest, and everyone is always happy!  The food is good and always plentiful.  They have wonderful activities and very good therapy.  And by the way, some of my favorite people work there.”
