Why Choose Colonial Acres?

Colonial Acres of Humboldt, Nebraska provides cost-effective medical care in a rural setting without compromising quality. We have very strong QAPI protocols and we have had no rehospitalizations of Medicare patients in over two and one-half years. We are very proud of our 5-Star status and we work diligently to maintain it.

Colonial Acres’ Medical Director, Dr. George Voigtlander, works with CMS on clinical pharmaceutical standards among the elderly. We are currently participating in a clinical trial of a new influenza vaccine for seniors and we are one of a handful of facilities in the State of Nebraska to participate in a Center for Disease Control (CDC) study on antibiotic stewardship and C-Diff/MDRO prevention. We cooperate closely with VA clinics and VA pharmacies to provide care for our veterans.
