Our community was created from a simple desire to help others and ensure no one in need ever goes without care. It all began with our founding visionaries and the help of Dr. Milton Ochs, who donated 47 acres to the Western District of the Moravian Church.
For 50 years, we’ve been proud to be an innovative, progressive leader of residential living and healthcare for older adults. Marquardt Village was one of the first to offer all private rooms in our health center. In 1985, long before it became commonplace, we introduced home health services to help people stay in their homes.
Early on, our nursing staff recognized the enormous impact recreational and social programs have on residents’ health and well-being. In response, we introduced an array of activities and amenities and created an extensive network of volunteers who generously donated their time and talents bringing joy and friendship.
In 2002, we established an internship program to train the next generation of professionals. An invigorating addition, the students share their youthful enthusiasm with residents and staff and offer new, exciting ideas.
Year after year, we’ve been a progressive leader holding true to our generous, selfless roots as a faith-based, not-for-profit community devoted to serving older adults. Take a look at our timeline below to see just how far we’ve come in 50 years.
Marquardt Village is sponsored by the Western District of the Moravian Church. We welcome people of all faiths.
