Welcome to Bethany of the Northwest

Bethany of the Northwest is a continuing care ministry, dedicated to enhancing the quality and dignity of life of those who we serve, out of love for God and neighbor.


Bethany delivers state-of-the-art multi-level supportive care and nursing services that are designed to meet the physical, spiritual, social, and psychological needs of elderly and disabled persons with a goal of offering a life of independence, dignity, and purpose.  Most of our residents are vulnerable, low-income senior citizens that rely on Medicare/Medicaid for housing, food, and medical services.  People look to Bethany for the kind of care they want for their loved ones.


Growing from humble beginnings, Bethany has been a household name in Snohomish County since 1931.  Originally Bethania College, “Bethany Home for the Aged” was established in 1931 by a group of men who believed there was a need for a Christian “Old People’s Home” in the Everett area.  Today, Bethany is the fourth largest not-for-profit long-term care provider in the State of Washington.  In three Everett locations, we provide 231 beds for skilled and sub-acute nursing, and 54 apartments for assisted living.  With a staff of more than 400, and a dedicated corps of volunteers, people continue to look to Bethany to provide our residents with a life of independence, dignity, and purpose.
