About Us

Deaconess Long Term Care is devoted to meeting the needs of those individuals entrusted to our care. We are a non-profit, faith-based community.We foster a nurturing environment where residents, families, and employees are treated with dignity, respect and compassion. We are committed to operating with integrity while being a productive and fiscally responsible member of each community we serve.

Not everyone needs the same level of care and support. We work with individuals, families, and health care providers to assess the unique needs of our residents.

Our families know the Ottawa Retirement Village difference and are very thankful for the wide range of services that we offer. Medicare and Medicaid payments accepted. The minimum age for our residents is 55 years or older.

Because Ottawa is within easy distance from Overland Park, Kansas City, Topeka, Lawrence, Emporia, Garnett and surrounding communities, visits from friends and loved ones are convenient. Plus, the small-town atmosphere provides a refreshing, cozy environment.
