About Us

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.

Grounded in Christian tradition, Bethany delivers state-of-the-art multi-level supportive care and nursing services to people of all backgrounds and experiences. In three Everett locations, we provide skilled and sub-acute nursing and apartments for assisted living. Our services are designed to meet the physical, spiritual, social, and psychological needs of elderly and disabled persons. Most of our residents are vulnerable, low-income senior citizens that rely on Medicare/Medicaid for housing, food, and medical services.


Growing from humble beginnings, Bethany has been a household name in Snohomish County since 1901. Originally Bethania College, “Bethany Home for the Aged” was established in 1901 by a group of Lutherans 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.
