Think of Halcyon House as your headquarters for living. 

Working Out

Halcyon House is located in the heart of Washington, Iowa, close to many local places of interest, including the Washington Community Y, Washington High School, shopping, banks, places of worship, the public library, health services, and more. 

If you embrace the benefits of exercise, you'll appreciate our extensive fitness area, exercise classes, and onsite yoga studio. Walk indoors -- five laps from one end of campus to the other equals one mile! -- or enjoy our beautiful outdoor pathways. Our full-time wellness director can tailor a program specifically to your goals and mentor you as you pursue them at your own pace. It's all part of our deep commitment to wellness in all its forms, no matter where you live, no matter what your situation.

I love to keep busy and make a difference. When I had to undergo hip replacement, the excellent care in rehab at Halcyon made all the difference in me being able to return to my active lifestyle. The staff couldn't have been more attentive or considerate.
