Community Coverage: Olton Operates Two Non Profit Health Facilities

Olton really epitomizes the meaning of community. Newschannel 11 discovered several examples of citizens coming together to revive the city or help each other out.

In 1984, a group of Olton residents decided to build the town's first nursing homes. It took them 8 years to raise money and seek funding but finally in 1993, Runningwater Draw Care Center opened. The non-profit nursing home now has 75 beds and rarely has a vacancy.

For more information call the center at (806) 285-2677 or click here.

The town did it all over again, just 7 years later and raised money to open a sister facility. The Sandhills Village Assisted Living Center opened in 1999 with sixteen rooms.

For more information call (806) 285-3356.
