While the raven is often associated with Edgar Allen Poe, mystery, and darkness, there are many positive associations as well. The raven is highly intelligent and adaptable, though misunderstood. In many cultures, the raven is known as the bringer of light, truth, and goodness.


Lakeview Health Center has been a part of the West Salem, Wisconsin community since 1887 when La Crosse County built a hospital to care for people who had a mental illness. This hospital was our "old building" and was used until 1975. In 1975, the residents moved into our current facility.

We continue to be owned and operated by La Crosse County.

Through the years, our health care services have expanded to include caring for people with dementia, people with other challenging behavior problems, and people with intellectual disabilities. We offer a full range of care service levels, from assisted living to skilled nursing care.
