Serving Our Community Since 1975

Welcome....to our Colorado mountain home



Cripple Creek Care Center is a full-service 24/7 skilled nursing care facility located in the small, historic Colorado mountain town of Cripple Creek.  In this serene setting the air is clean, the views are spectacular, and the night skies sparkle! Licensed for 55 residents, we are small enough to be family, and large enough to offer all modern health care services.


Open since 1975, we take pride in serving our local community, as well as residents that now come to us from throughout Colorado. Our entire staff strives to meet our motto:  “Dedicated to Quality and Committed to Caring.” If you or a loved one is now in a position of needing nursing care on a short-term or long-term basis, we welcome the opportunity to answer your questions and provide you the information you need to make the important decision about becoming part of our family at Cripple Creek Care Center.
