Concordia Gears Up For Summer Events

May 26, 2015

With a history that spans over 130 years, Concordia has developed a pretty strong reputation for delivering excellent, faith-based care at a value that we believe is unmatched. Throughout that history, summer events have always been something residents, families and our local community have embraced.... So we like to think we're also becoming pretty well known for our community events!

Get your pens out – this summer, we have a number of events worth marking your calendars for!
