About Us

Lakeland Health Care Center is a privately-owned 195-bed skilled nursing care center located in Passaic County, New Jersey. We at Lakeland take pride in presenting a safe, friendly and nurturing home and in offering the highest quality nursing and clinical care. At Lakeland, residents, families, staff and volunteers all collaborate to create an environment that encourages individuality, personal choice and self-determination.

It is our mission to provide peace of mind to our residents and families, to be supportive of our staff, to be innovative and reliable in our services, and to remain at all times a beacon of trustworthiness for our community.

We constantly search out the latest innovations in rehabilitation therapy for persons recovering from Orthopedic surgery and from strokes, as well as from diseases such as Parkinson’s. Our rehabilitation staff provides a variety of technologically advanced treatment options, such as OmniVR (a wonderful virtual reality tool for physical and cognitive therapies) and Shortwave Diathermy and Therapeutic Ultrasound, to help reduce pain and inflammation, decrease joint stiffness, relieve muscle spasms and increase local blood flow, thereby enabling patients to maximize the benefit from therapy. Our goal in therapy — as with all of our other areas of expertise, including Diabetes Management, Wound Care Dementia Care, and Hospice Care — is to enable those entrusted to us to enhance their quality of life, through skilled staff equipped with the most advanced treatment methods and equipment.

Under the same ownership since 1989, Lakeland consistently invests to ensure that our physical environment provides an attractive and warm place to recover and to live. Recent major renovations include installing new landscape and hardscape, remodeling of our rehabilitation suite, upgrading the lighting and ceilings throughout the facility, installing exciting new wall art downstairs, and renovations to resident rooms, beauty parlor and common areas.

We are conveniently located to all residing in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan just one mile off of Route 287, Exit 55, in Wanaque, New Jersey. We accept most Medicare, Medicaid and most major insurance plans. Lakeland has established itself as a regional leader among referring hospitals and physician groups.
