  • Transportation:  The activities department schedules various outings throughout the month and provides transportation in our 20 passenger wheelchair accessible bus.   Transportation to health care appointments is the responsibility of the resident, family, or responsible party.

If the physician is not willing to visit Spurgeon Manor, it is the responsibility of the family to take the resident to the doctor in accordance with the regulations.  Spurgeon Manor maintains a contract with a physician to serve as its Medical Director.  Currently, our Medical Director is Dr. Ron McHose, D.O., who is located in Dallas Center and available for consultation.
