Ely and the surrounding area has access to a full-time ambulance service including a Life Link helicopter for emergency transport and some of the best Wilderness First Responders in the nation. There are also several housing options available throughout the community for seniors requiring all levels of care.
Open three days a week, the Ely VA Clinic provides Veterans with readily accessible healthcare, including primary care, mental health care and specialty care. Residents also have access to a full-service vision center, three dental offices, and a full range of mental health services including therapy, family support, community living options and other supportive services.
If you are looking for more than traditional healthcare opportunities, a wide variety of options are available for mind, body and soul health including yoga, meditation, massage and much more.
