Ely-Bloomenson Nursing Home Becomes Boundary Waters Care Center

HDG has formally assumed operations for Ely-Bloomenson Nursing Home in Ely, Minn. Previously managed by Ely-Bloomenson Community Hospital (EBCH), the 58-bed skilled nursing facility has transitioned to be a nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation and has been renamed Boundary Waters Care Center (BWCC).

“We have greatly appreciated the enthusiastic support from the board of directors during this transition process,” said HDG Regional Director of Operations Mark Pederson. “We’re delighted and honored to be a part of the Ely community, and we look forward to serving the Northland with the highest level of care, programs, and services.”
