Goshen Care Center

The Goshen Care Center Joint Powers Board received a $3 million Business Council grant to construct a 30-unit assisted living facility in Torrington.

The project will meet the demand for assisted living as identified in market studies done in 2012 and 2018. Seniors will have the opportunity to continue living in Goshen County where they might otherwise have to seek assisted living in Nebraska or other communities.

The project will also provide 15 jobs. Healthcare was the fastest growing economic sector in Goshen County at 78% between 2010 and 2014. The industry is the leading employer in Goshen County.

The expanded level of care for seniors will promote a continuum of care which will complement the independent living with assistance at the adjacent Evergreen Court, and skilled nursing and memory care at the Goshen Healthcare.
