Shuksan Healthcare Center

a family of friendly faces encouraging wellness, humor, happiness and a sense of purpose

In the charming York neighborhood of beautiful Bellingham, Washington, Shuksan Healthcare Center is a short-term rehabilitation and recovery care community for individuals after hospitalization.  


The Eden Alternative

We follow The Eden Alternative, which is a philosophy based on the premise that aging should be a continued stage of development and growth, rather than a period of decline. As such, we celebrate our residents with compassionate and individualized, quality care, meaningful recreational opportunities and leisurely programs that promote lifelong learning.


Rehabilitation Therapy

Enter the therapy gym at Shuksan and you will immediately notice that we are different. Our in-house, physical, occupational and speech therapists are encouraged to think outside the box while providing quality rehabilitation care.


Shuksan Healthcare Center is a privately-owned, 52-bed short-term rehabilitation and skilled nursing facility. We are located in the charming York neighborhood of
Bellingham, Washington.

Dietary & Nutritional

Maintaining optimal nutritional health is so very important for our residents and we take the responsibility very seriously. Our registered dietician works directly with our residents so that we can meet and exceed their dietary needs for each meal, every day.

Wellness & Activities

We take great pride in providing our community of residents with enriching and fulfilling recreation on a daily basis. Leisure programming is guided by our residents’ wishes and interests which allows us to incorporate a myriad of fun-filled activities that suit their individual needs.

Care Team

Our philosophy on caregiving is quite simple in that we believe in treating the whole person, not just the ailment. We can provide this exceptional level of care in large part because of our dedicated team of licensed nurses and nursing assistants.

Social Services

Navigating through healthcare scenarios can often be overwhelming and frustrating for residents and their families. Our social services team is here to help ease this stress however possible by providing community resources, coordinating home health services, assisting with Medicaid applications and leading care plan conferences.
