Hello! My name is April Johnston. I joined Rural Health Development in January 2018 and I currently am the Administrator at Saint Joseph’s Villa and Court in David City, NE.

I am originally from Neola, Iowa I moved to Lincoln, Nebraska in August 2016. I am a mom of three teenage girls. Natasha is 19, Jaika is 17 and Kyla is 15. My Instagram bio would describe me as funny, nerdy, a coffee lover, a food lover, a wannabe fitness guru, a fan of shopping,  completely curious about the world, and a sports fanatic.

St. Joseph’s Villa celebrated it’s 70th anniversary in 2009. It currently is a 58 bed facility that is both Medicaid and Medicare certified. The Villa also supports a special care unit for Alzheimer residents. The Unit, called St. Theresa’s Garden, has it’s own outside court yard. St. Joseph’s Court will celebrate it’s 10th anniversary in 2010 and can accommodate 26 residents in 22 apartments. Both facilities are owned by the Adorer’s of the Blood of Christ. The facilities are attached to one another and conduct many activities together. Combined, both facilities employ 100 employees in the community. SJV&C was originally operated by the Sister’s themselves, they have employed RHD since July 2008 to manage both facilities. Both facilities were deficiency free with the 2010 annual surveys.
