Who We Are
Welcome to Lagniappe Healthcare where we provide complete skilled nursing services to our residents and patients by our team of dedicated professionals working 24 hours a day 7 days a week. At Lagniappe Healthcare, we believe in the preservation of dignity, self-respect and resident rights in a loving and caring environment. We offer our residents with an ambience where they can enjoy life to its fullest while receiving assistance with activities of daily living, where a long term relationship between staff and residents is the key to our success.
The facility originally operated as Summerlin Lane Nursing home for over 30 years until 2008 when local owners took over and renamed it to Lagniappe Healthcare. The new name better reflects the new mission and focuses on creating a home-like atmosphere for the residents and their families. The name “Lagniappe” by definition means, “a little bit extra,” which is exactly what we aim to offer our residents. Our highly skilled and dedicated staff of care providers have vast experience in providing long-term rehabilitative care.
Our Mission & Vision
The mission of Lagniappe Healthcare is to provide our community with a facility that maintains the highest level of resident care available. Each resident is treated with dignity and respect; encouraged and enabled to achieve the fullest use of their mental, physical, spiritual and social capacities. Admission is available to all adults regardless of race creed, color, sex, age, handicap or national origin. All residents are treated with the care that will ensure their personal dignity. We feel that caring about people is as important as caring for them. To that end, kindness and understanding are the hallmark of each and every one of our caring staff.
We’re Here for You
We understand the challenges facing patients of recent acute hospitalization for illness, injury or other limitations. That is why we ensure that we provide excellent care and the comforts they deserve with the goal of helping them achieve their highest possible functional capacity and independence.
We know the people we serve and understand individual residents healthcare needs. We also understand that the residents we serve are your mothers and fathers, your sisters and brothers, your uncles, grandparents, friends and loved ones. Like you, we want to provide them with the best care and support possible.
We have the compassion, experience, skills and dedication to make the difference. Your health, your home, your peace of mind. You can trust Lagniappe Healthcare with everything that means the most to you.
