History & Values

Our History

In 1955, an ecumenical community group of Methodists, Episcopalians, and Presbyterians came together to address the need for providing care for the seniors of southern Oregon. Their discussion led to the formation of a not-for-profit organization, which purchased 16 acres in Medford and built the original 10-story Rogue Valley Manor building. Through the years, the Manor has grown in size and scope. Its expansive campus is now home to nearly 1,000 residents.

Rogue Valley Manor is managed by Pacific Retirement Services, a national not-for-profit leader in the senior living and healthcare sector. The PRS corporate philosophy is based on a resident-centered model of service provision: at PRS communities, residents always come first. PRS strives for excellence in all areas of business, managing each with the highest standards of quality, integrity, and compassion.


Rogue Valley Manor is a not-for-profit organization, which means that all funds exceeding expenses are reinvested back into the community itself. Because there are no shareholders or investors who are expecting to earn profits, the Manor is able to use its funds for things that enhance the lives of residents. For example, funds are used to improve the physical plant on an ongoing basis, to add new programs, and to expand services for residents.


Rogue Valley Manor is committed to enriching the lives of its residents in a Life Plan Community environment.
