Our Vision

To grow a culture that thrives on the value of compassion and family. At Sterling Healthcare, we attract team members with a natural disposition for caring.

Mission Statement

To be a leading healthcare company, that provides quality care and services. We are dedicated to fostering a healthy work environment that promotes communication, respect, and collaboration among its employees.


Our History

Located in the heart of the Notre Dame expansive campus area, Morning view Assisted Living has truly become a part of this rich community. Sterling Healthcare Management acquired Morning View in 2015 and has been instilling its message of “trust, care, and quality of life” ever since. Previously the Singer sewing machine manufacturing building, Morning view has retained much of its original, rustic styling. This, combined with our recent renovations, creates a sense of welcome that permeates throughout the entire facility.
