Legacy Senior Services Acquires Fair Oaks Lodge Long-Term Care and Rehabilitation and Tri-County Health Care Home Care and Hospice
On May 1, Health Dimensions Group (HDG) took over management of properties in Wadena, Minn., including Fair Oaks Lodge Long-Term Care and Rehabilitation and Tri-County Health Care Home Care and Hospice. Legacy Senior Services acquired both locations and is working with the Wadena Housing and Redevelopment Authority to establish a lease or management agreement to manage the Fair Oaks Apartments, located on the Fair Oaks Lodge campus.
This collaboration of services will create viability and sustain senior services for the Wadena community. Residents of Wadena and the surrounding area will be able to work with Fair Oaks Lodge team members to address nearly all senior residential and health care issues, including independent apartment living, home health services, hospice services, short-term rehabilitation, and long-term care services.
“For more than 50 years, Fair Oaks Lodge has provided a full spectrum of health care services to their residents,” said Joel Beiswenger, Tri-County Health Care President and CEO. “I am confident that this transition will be good for the residents and the staff at Fair Oaks Lodge.”
Health Dimensions Group, a consultation and management company specializing in senior and post-acute care management, will oversee the acquisition and manage the operations for Legacy Senior Services to ensure continued partnership and collaboration with Tri-County Health Care.
“As health care reform and mounting regulatory and economic pressures continue, it will be imperative for different health care providers—hospitals, long-term care centers, senior living, and home health services—to collaborate and promote healthy, independent living. This will ensure residents receive the right support services, in the right location, at the right time, from the right provider,” said Glen Roebuck, vice president of development for HDG. “Together, we will make this a reality for the citizens of Wadena.”
Representatives from HDG met with employees, family members and residents to explain the proposed transition. Current staffing levels and compensation will continue for employees. While the benefit plan will change with new ownership, HDG will work to create a benefit plan equal in service and cost to the benefit plan currently offered to Fair Oaks Lodge staff.
