DIETARY AIDE needed for entry level, high growth position at healthcare facility
Kittanning Care Center, conveniently located off Route 422 three miles east of Kittanning Borough, is a 120-bed Skilled Nursing Center, including a 42-bed Center for the Memory Impaired, and Specialty Care in Wound Management.
Built in 1980, the facility underwent a $1 million renovation in 1997 and a second renovation in 2009. The large, single-floor building features two separate dining areas and two courtyards, one to accommodate memory-impaired individuals and one for other residents. Recent improvements include new lighting, wallpaper, and flat screen televisions, as well as new electric low beds, outdoor landscaping, and a complete renovation of our Dietary Kitchen.

Support facilities are conveniently located for easy access by all residents and families.
