Whether you need a little help with your daily activities, memory support, long- or short-term rehabilitation therapy or skilled nursing care, Friendship Village offers a variety of services, backed by our Life Care contract.
While you're free to select your own physician provider, you have the choice of a convenient option right on campus. Offering primary healthcare services by appointment to patients 65 years and older, the AMITA Health Physician Center is conveniently located on site, just a short walk from your door, so there’s no need to drive or arrange to be driven to appointments.

Friendship Village residents also have monthly access at the AMITA Health Physician Center to visiting specialists including dentists, audiologists, podiatrists, cardiologists, and internists. You don’t have to be a patient of of AMITA Health to benefit the visiting specialists.
