About Us

In 1964, Cecil Mitchell established his first nursing care residence. His care and dedication continued over the next four decades by owning and managing several facilities in Northwest Ohio. In 1985 at the age of 67, Cecil Mitchell built Swanton Health Care and Retirement Center.

The legacy of caring and family values is still thriving today, with three generations having served those who have chosen to call Swanton Health Care and Retirement Center “home”. We are able to honor Mr. Mitchell’s legacy by continuing to offer older adults who want to shape their own retirement lifestyle, the right amount of assistance, and by providing a choice of residences, so they are able to enjoy a secure, pampered and customized place to call home.


The Swanton Health Care
and Retirement Center Mission Statement

Our residents are not an interruption of our work, they are the purpose of it.
We are not doing them a favor by serving them, they are doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so."

(Cecil Mitchell, as the daily working motto)
