History

Infirmary residents shucking peas, circa 1940s.

In 1868, the Wood County Board of Infirmary Directors purchased a 200 acre farm for the purpose of constructing a three-story building to house the County Infirmary. Additions in 1892 included a barn, staff quarters, and a new resident wing. In 1913, the governing powers were transferred to the County Commissioners, and the Infirmary became the Wood County Home in 1919.

In 1971, the County Home was relocated and replaced with a modern 125 bed single-story brick building and dedicated as the Wood County Nursing Home. The original building and acreage was turned over to the Historical Society in 1973 and currently houses the Wood County Historical Society Museum. Renovations in the 1990s included a new kitchen, enlarged dining room, and a new activity area.

In 2003, the facility was renamed Wood Haven Health Care, Senior Living & Rehabilitation. A rehabilitation wing renovation and therapy room additions, completed in 2005, offers Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy services for both in-house residents and out-patients alike.

Wood Haven Health Care is owned and operated under the Board of Wood County Commissioners.
