Christian Health Care Center is a nonprofit skilled nursing facility open to everyone regardless of race, sex, or religion.

It was founded in 1956 by a group of Reformed and Christian Reformed church leaders.  Their original vision was to provide healthcare for older adults in Lynden and throughout Whatcom County.

Today those healthcare services are provided to adults of all ages in a compassionate and loving environment, consistent with the Christian principles on which it was founded.

CHCC’s spent its first 45 years in a facility located at 205 S. BC Avenue.

In 2001, after a successful fundraising campaign and countless volunteer hours, CHCC moved into a newly constructed, modern building at 855 Aaron Drive in Lynden, WA.

The new building allowed CHCC to provide rehabilitation services and long-term care for up to 142 individuals.

In 2015, CHCC assumed ownership of the only adult day health program in Whatcom County and moved it to a new building in Lynden. The addition of Northwest Adult Day Health & Wellness Center meant that adults from surrounding communities could come to one healthcare campus for a continuum of care.
