LaurelWood Care Center is a 120-bed Skilled Nursing Center which includes a 20-bed Specialty Care Program offering Cardiac, Orthopedic, and Wound Care Program.
LaurelWood sits in a wooded, hilltop community in southern Cambria County. Beautifully landscaped, the grounds include a patio, walking paths, gardens, and shaded lawns that let you enjoy watching deer and other wildlife. Conveniently located off Route 271 (Menoher Blvd.), the Center is quickly accessible from virtually anywhere in Johnstown, so that friends and family can easily visit.
The center is currently seeking a Certified Nurse Aide to provide personal and restorative nursing care and assists, as directed by onsite nurses.
