Catholic Eldercare breaks ground on Transitional Care Unit in Northeast Minneapolis

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

Catholic Eldercare will soon introduce a new 3-story, 24-bed Transitional Care Unit addition to its community. A groundbreaking ceremony was held Tuesday, Oct. 20, in the heart of Northeast Minneapolis to mark the occasion.

Former mayor, Albert J. Hofstede, spoke during the event. He is one of the original founders of Catholic Eldercare.

The 40,000 sq. ft. facility provides patients recovering from surgery, injury, or stroke with a place of healing while still maintaining their independence. The addition offers additional rehabilitation services, Adult Day program, as well as physical and speech therapies.

CEO Dan Johnson says the TCU will be the only one in the Northeast area.

For the past three decades, Catholic Eldercare has offered multiple residential nursing communities in Northeast Minneapolis. Its specialties include assisted living, independent living, skilled nursing, and memory care. The Transitional Care Unit is expected to be completed in 2016.
