About Altercare

For Over 45 Years

Altercare has provided families with high quality short-term rehabilitation, long-term nursing care, memory care and senior living with compassion and respect.

Since Altercare's founding 1973, Altercare's founders, the Schroer family, have made long-term healthcare their passion. The family has a history of embracing communities where they can truly make an impact on a population. Under the Schroer family's leadership, Altercare has grown to serve patients throughout Ohio and portions of Michigan.

We believe in treating our patients and residents as we would our own families. We respect their needs and goals first and foremost.

We do our best to ensure high quality, efficient care is delivered with compassion. We honor this principle through patient-staff ratios that allow us to go the extra mile, transitional care nurses who smooth the move from hospital to an Altercare center, and open patient and family communication supporting a successful transition home.

We also stand at the forefront of technology in healthcare. Our teams leverage electronic health records, automated pharmacy delivery and other leading-edge approaches in daily care. We nurture idea cultivation, best practice sharing and process reviews to improve patient experiences and outcomes.

We've grown in recent years and today serve more families than ever:

  • 7,416 New patients in 2018
  • 9,033 Total patients served in 2018
  • 6,378 Patients discharged home in 2018

Altercare offers the experience, expertise and efficiencies of a large provider, with the comforting, compassionate approach of a family-owned organization.
