Who is the not-for-profit leader behind Marquardt Village?
Marquardt Village was founded by the Moravian Church Western District in 1965. Today our community continues as a not-for-profit ministry of the church, staying true to its mission of providing quality services and compassionate care in a warm, friendly atmosphere. Marquardt Village welcomes people of all faiths.
What does it mean that Marquardt Village is a not-for-profit and faith-based community?
As a not-for-profit organization, Marquardt Village reinvests revenue after expenses into the community and its services, while for-profit communities use revenue to pay dividends to investors. This difference, along with our faith-based ministry, are at the heart of Marquardt Village's mission: "grounded in faith, we promote the health and well-being of each individual we serve." Additionally, our not-for-profit status means that Marquardt Village must meet stringent financial guidelines and government regulations.
What independent living choices do active adults have?

What are the benefits of living in a full-service community?
Marquardt Village offers a lifestyle full of possibilities. Independent living apartments and garden homes include a package of services and amenities that provide the freedom to enjoy an active lifestyle. Residents also have access to a full continuum of on-campus health care services - assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing and short-term rehabilitation - providing peace of mind about the future for residents and their families. When health service residences are available, individuals may also enter the community for any of the services.
How will my health care needs be met - now and in the future?

This "Towne Centre" will add dining options, a wellness/fitness center, the relocated chapel, and gathering spaces for activities, programs, events and more. Towne Centre is expected to open in 2016.
