What makes us unique?

  • Accommodations are made for Winnebago County residents regardless of their challenging physical/developmental/mental issues and their ability to pay.
  • Park View is a smoke-free campus, which encompasses the building and all surrounding parking lots and grounds.
  • The facility, which is 5-10 minutes from downtown Oshkosh, yet 10-15 minutes from downtown Neenah, is nestled in a park and offers more than ten courtyards as well as working vegetable and flower gardens.
  • The newer building provides comfortable, home-like accommodations with private rooms and wall-mounted, flat-screen televisions.
  • The dining areas within each of the sixteen households are spacious and inviting.
  • Park View was one of the first nursing facilities to become a certified "Wisconsin Music & Memory" facility.
  • Soft-touch massage therapy is offered by licensed therapists to residents requesting those services.
  • There is recognition of the therapeutic value of pet visits and it is an encouraged practice. They must be on a leash, not harmful to others, and they are not allowed in dining areas. Pets must also be up-to-date on their vaccinations and healthy at the time of their visits.
  • Park View provides in-house, certified wound care nurses.
  • Area health systems and managed care organizations provide physician extender services (i.e., nurse practitioner, physician's assistant) whom regularly visit their patients at Park View.
  • OPTUM® – Park View Health Center has partnered with UnitedHealthcare® to offer OPTUM to our residents. OPTUM provides Medicare-covered, onsite care to nursing home residents, with no additional premium costs beyond the original Medicare and Medicare Part D premiums.

    If a resident chooses OPTUM services, the assigned, in-house nurse practitioner will work closely with the resident and family members, their physician, and our staff in providing consistent, coordinated and compassionate care, potentially avoiding the number of stressful trips to the hospital.

  • Limited, in-house transportation services can be provided, depending on the service schedule.


Via Fox Graphics, orders are collected the third week of every month for processing and delivered to Park View for pick up.  Questions?  Contact Kathy Glander at
