 KHQ Senior Life | >ROCKWOOD Home

Rockwood Retirement Communities is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to providing services and housing to older adults with a commitment to excellence in promoting independence, wellness and lifelong vitality.

We own and operate two retirement communities in Spokane:

Rockwood South sits on 90 suburban acres on Spokane's South Hill and serves more than 400 residents.  It provides independent and assisted living apartments, as well as a gated neighborhood featuring custom independent living homes and duplexes.
Rockwood at Hawthorne is nestled in a north side neighborhood on 8 acres and serves about 120 residents. It features independent living apartments and homes, as well as assisted living and skilled nursing.  The property includes 20 homes surrounding a lovely courtyard.

When you choose a distinctive, custom-designed home or apartment at either location, you are provided with an extensive variety of services and amenities.  We provide independent living, assisted living and 24-hour on-site skilled nursing if ever needed.


Rockwood's History

We began in the mid-1950s when members of Spokane's Central United Methodist Church began plans for a new kind of retirement community that was to be nothing like a stand-alone nursing home.

Our 7-story tower of independent apartments opened on November 1, 1960, making Rockwood

one of the pioneers in the state offering an active retirement alternative.

In 1987, construction began on Rockwood South's private homes in Rockwood Forest Estates.  This exclusive neighborhood of custom homes now offers highly independent living in a secure residential setting, while allowing residents access our services and programs.

Our expansion continued in 1999 when Spokane United Methodist Homes acquired Hawthorne Retirement Community, now called Rockwood at Hawthorne.  Our facility at Hawthorne now offers independent living apartments and homes, assisted living and skilled nursing.

Rockwood continues to be an innovator in improving the quality of life for its residents.
