Badger Prairie Health Care Center

Badger Prairie Health Care Center (BPHCC) is a skilled nursing facility located just outside Madison in Verona, Wisconsin.  We have been serving the citizens of Dane County since 1880. We primarily serve people whose needs cannot be met in other care settings by providing exceptional person-centered care and treatment to seniors with physical, behavioral, emotional, or psychiatric disorders. We specialize in providing long-term care, end-of-life care, and short-term rehabilitation.

Our residents need skilled nursing that may not be attainable while living with their families or in community settings. Our other specialties include dementia and Alzheimer's care, geriatric psychiatry, people with dual diagnoses, and people who have both challenging physical care needs and behaviors.
