Heartfelt Care in the Heartland

Heartfelt Care in the Heartland

Hawkeye Care Centers were founded by Mike Hamm a humble yet driven Iowan set on a mission to provide exceptional environments for families in need of long-term care. Established nearly 40 years ago, Hamm raised the bar for senior living, instilling deeply rooted family values of integrity, trust and compassion in each of his communities.

Hawkeye Care Center Dubuque is located on five acres on the west side of Dubuque and is literally connected to an old Catholic Church, St. Philomena’s, which still holds Mass on Saturdays. Smallish in size, it offers a more personalized family feel and is well known for the stability of its nursing staff. The Care Center also features Independent Senior Living Apartments in the lower level.

As a Hawkeye Care Center, we’re part of a phenomenal family of senior care communities with strong, supportive leadership and roots in Iowa that go back more than four decades. Our core values were created to bring out true happiness, positivity and fun for every one of our residents, as well inspire employees to always do the right thing.
