Christ’s love for us was demonstrated by His healing of the sick; so we must serve all men and women in charity; regardless of race, creed, or ethnic background.

The Marian Home is an extension of Christ’s mission of mercy.
Read Our Story
The original Marian Home operated until 1974 when the office of Comprehensive Health Planning of Iowa approved the construction of a new facility. The 97-bed facility was approved by the board and requested the new structure be a “Diocesan Institution”. A corporation was formed and the Bishop of the Diocese appointed a priest to take charge of construction. An “open house” was held on April 25, 1976, and the Marian Home started to admit residents on May 26, 1976.
The Marian Home is an extension of Christ’s mission of mercy. Christ’s love for man was demonstrated by his healing of the sick; so the Catholic Home must serve all men and women in charity, regardless of race, creed, or ethnic background. In 1978, the Board of Directors saw a need to service people in another area of health care. Plans were drawn and construction was started on a twelve unit Independent Living Apartment complex, The Marian Village. The first phase of the apartment complex consisted of six single rooms, three two-bedroom apartments, and three one-bedroom apartments. In 1986, an additional seventeen apartments were opened for occupancy. The new addition consists of three two-bedroom apartments, nine I bedroom apartments, three studios, and two single-room apartments.
Nursing services to the occupants are on an emergency nursing situation basis, with a variety of nursing procedures able to be set up. Meals are furnished to those interested. The residents of the Marian Village can take part in all activities and special events offered at the Marian Home. The apartment complex has a beautiful lounge and dining area for residents and family gatherings. All maintenance, utilities, and housekeeping services, except telephone, are furnished to the residents. The two facilities are connected by an enclosed walkway.
Over the years, an ambulance entrance was built to shelter our residents when leaving the facility for doctor visits and other various outings. An addition was added to the dining room, to make more spacious and comfortable seating for the residents. In March of 2004, the Marian Home changed from a nursing facility to a Licensed Skilled Facility, accepting Medicare Residents.
In 2015, The Marian Home nursing home underwent a 12 million dollar addition and remodel to enhance the surroundings for the residents to enjoy.
