Bethel Lutheran Nursing & Rehabilitation Center exists for the primary purpose of providing Christian Care in its truest meaning - ministering to the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of each person, not merely as a professional service, but as a work of love and mercy. Thus, we minister to people in the name of Christ by "Recognizing Each Individual As A Child Of God".

We are proud of our rich history of providing quality Christian care to the people of our region for over 70 years.  Through many years of continued service, BLNRC has grown to become one of the largest nursing facilities in North Dakota.  Incorporated in 1948, our tradition of care began July 10, 1951 with the admission of our first resident.  BLNRC has experienced numerous expansion and renovation projects throughout the years and in 2002, we converted to a neighborhood like setting. 

We recently signed a purchase agreement with the City of Williston for land in the Williston Square Development and have plans to build a new facility in the coming years.  While a building project of this size is no small feat, we are confident that a new facility will allow us to better care for those of our area.  We are excited to partner with the city and it's residents in this new adventure!
