Sunnycrest Manor is three story long term care facility located high on the bluffs of Dubuque, Iowa overlooking the Mississippi River. Sunnycrest Manor is supported by the citizens of Dubuque County and serves residents of Dubuque County who require Skilled/Nursing Facility, Residential or ICF/MR levels of care and have a financial need.
Sunnycrest was originally built as a TB sanatorium in 1917 and was eventually converted into a geriatric care facility under the name of “Dubuque County Nursing Home” in 1959. An addition to the facility was constructed in 1968 and in 1976 the name of the facility was changed back to Sunnycrest Manor.
The facility name was changed back to “Sunnycrest” Manor in 1976. In 1980, Sunnycrest opened the Sunrise ICF/MR unit becoming one of the first community based intermediate care facilities for persons with mental retardation. In 2001, Sunnycrest Manor implemented the “Home & Heart” program. This innovative resident centered care program has become a model example of nursing home culture change. The facility became Medicare certified to provide skilled nursing and rehabilitation services in May of 2005. Sunnycrest is also contracted with the Veterans Administration to provide long term care services for eligible veterans.
