Our Mission

We are a family-oriented health care provider, dedicated to excellence, whose mission is to enhance the lives of those we serve by providing quality care with respect, dignity and kindness.

Our Company

Strategically located in the Northern Rocky and North Central Plains regions to cover rural areas in need of care, Lantis Enterprises manages the operations of a network of rurally based healthcare providers that offer quality care to seniors and individuals needing care either in their home or at specialized locations such as rehabilitation clinics, assisted living residences, and long term care facilities.

Our range of services offered includes personalized home maker care, nursing and therapy services in the home, facility-based assisted care services, personal care, adult day care, respite care services and hospice services in long-term care facilities, special care programs and living for memory impaired individuals, as well as sub-acute services including rehabilitation programs.

What We Do

At WEL-Home Health Miles City, our goal is to give each of our residents the support he or she needs to become as independent and safe as possible everyday, functional activities. From short-term rehabilitation to longer, more involved care, we strive to make every stay with us as comfortable and useful as possible. Our commitment to treating each of our residents with respect, dignity, and kindness make our facility feel more like home, and our top-notch staff and ever-expanding set of services and features make sure you and your loved ones get the exceptional level care that you depend on.

Interdisciplinary Team Approach

We specialize in team care planning for our residents. Drawing on the combined input and skills of the resident, family members, physicians, nurses, therapists, departmental staff, and professional consultants, we approach the well-being of our residents from every possible angle.

Our Staff

Because we take such a hands-on approach to care, the quality of our staff is as important as anything in delivering on our promise. Our residents tell us we have some of the best people around, so take a second to get to know one of our staff members, and see if you agree with them.

Our Community

When we say we serve our community, we mean that in more ways than one. A big part of feeling "at home" is feeling like you’re part of the neighborhood, so we always try to give our residents opportunities to participate in and add to the lives of those around us. Take a look and see for yourself how we’re always trying to be a positive influence on the local community.

Our History and Founders

Will Lantis, the founder of Lantis Enterprises, was a modern day pioneer - veteran, rancher, politician, family man, and businessman. Through his experiences as a chemical and maintenance supply salesman for senior living organizations, Will came to believe that the elderly were not receiving quality care. He believed they deserved to be treated with respect, dignity and kindness, and that one way to do that was by providing them a home away from home.

In 1972, Will and Mary Ellen Lantis purchased their first long-term care facility in Bridgeport, Nebraska, founding Lantis Enterprises, a tax paying entity. After that, they started purchasing troubled facilities throughout Nebraska, and eventually throughout the Midwest. Will completely rebuilt their structures, management, residential care, and reputations from the ground up.

After 25 years of living in Kearney, Nebraska, Will and Mary Ellen's love for South Dakota’s Black Hills prompted them to move the corporate headquarters to Spearfish. The office opened with 3 employees, all based out of the basement of the Lantis’ cabin. Through years of hard work and dedication, our growth has outpaced our space, as we marked our 10th Year Anniversary in Spearfish by doubling our office space on Colorado Boulevard.

Lantis Enterprises Corporate Office houses the support services for 21 long term care centers, 6 Alzheimer's Units, 14 personal care/assisted living centers, and 5 home health agencies. We provide research, development and management expertise through our accounting, finance, operations, human resources, home health, medical nursing, marketing, and rehabilitation departments. Our local office employs over 40 full-time professionals with almost 2000 staff members in the field.

Family has always been important to Will & Mary Ellen. The employees are an extension of their family, as are the residents and the communities in which they live. Will & Mary Ellen committed themselves to creating a place of healing and professional growth in a high-tech sophisticated health care network.

In August 2006 Will Lantis was taken from us suddenly in a one-car automobile accident. Mary Ellen and the rest of the "Lantis family" will continue the legacy in the spirit of our beginnings. Mrs. Lantis, who previously had focused mainly on maintaining the “at-home” feel of the facilities, has since assumed the primary leadership role.

As a tribute to Will, our co-founder, we will continue to service our community with a new theme "Western Hospitality with a Smile".
