About Pleasantview

Pleasantview is “a welcoming faith-based community that supports healthy living and quality of life.

(Mission Statement, adapted 2019)

With the first resident’s move to Pleasantview in 1958, thus began a relationship with the community that has for more than six decades provided much-needed elderly care services. Through the years, those services expanded, regulations increased, building projects ensued; and through it all, exemplary care continued to be offered.

Our official name is the Iowa Mennonite Benevolent Association (IMBA), doing business as (dba) Pleasantview. It began as an effort among local Mennonite and Amish ministers, governed by those same ministers under the (legal) IMBA umbrella. A contest was held to actually name the facility, with Pleasantview Home selected. In 2020 the “Home” was dropped from the name.

Today, local churches – Mennonite and non-Mennonite alike – provide ‘ownership’ to the organization. A Board of Directors supplies governance, and a staff of more than 140 provide care to residents and attend to the daily operations.

Our campus today includes 60 Independent Living units that surround our nursing facility. Inside the facility are private (with a few shared) rooms that house residents needing Skilled Care, as well as Long-Term Care, Dementia Care, and Assisted Living (coming soon!).

Pleasantview is a 5-star facility, according to the rating system administered by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). With 5 being the highest, CMS focuses on health inspections, staffing, and quality of resident care measures.

Pleasantview is blessed to have wonderful Team Members…individuals who commit to displaying the Core Values of community, integrity, kindness, and quality.

Please join us in our continued efforts to move Pleasantview forward!
