Long Term Care

A holistic approach to the challenges of aging.

Cuyuna Regional Medical Center - Care Center is a long-term care facility licensed for 69 beds that provides 24-hour care for people needing both long-term care as well as those requiring transitional short stay care such as rehabilitation and recovery after surgery.

Every day we dedicate ourselves to providing different opportunities such as outings, educational and enrichment classes, religious services and music, arts, crafts, games, wellness classes, and more.


New Care Center Under Construction

A state-of-the-art, multimillion-dollar nursing home now being built on the Heartwood Senior Living Community campus in Crosby is expected to open in the Fall of 2024. 

Cuyuna Regional Medical Center in July 2022 announced plans to build the new facility across Highway 210 from CRMC’s main campus to continue providing high quality care and services to meet the needs of residents of greater Minnesota. Once construction of the new Care Center is completed, residents in the current CRMC Care Center will move to the new site.

Ground was broken in June 2023 for the new 45,000-square-foot nursing home as an additional wing on the Heartwood. The main purpose of the project is to enhance the living experience of the residents and to create a more efficient work environment for staff.

“Our community has an expectation for high-quality health care and CRMC’s current Care Center cannot meet this need,” said CEO Amy Hart adding we do not want residents to have to go elsewhere for services. “Long-term care has evolved over the last 60 years and CRMC needs to evolve with it. Creating Heartwood Phase II allows CRMC to fulfill its mission of accommodating residents with care and compassion.”

CRMC’s current Care Center was built in 1962 and cannot be expanded at its current site because of congestion, required repairs, and structural issues. In addition, the current Care Center’s design is outdated and does not support resident independence and privacy. Many of the resident rooms and showers are shared, there are narrow bathroom doorways, long hallways, lack of common areas, storages, and offices.

Designed by BKV Architecture of Minneapolis, the new nursing home will have more of a neighborhood feel where residents have privacy and dignity, yet short distances to meet and connect with other residents. There will be lounge areas, a therapy room, central dining room, touch down nursing stations, outdoor living spaces and views, and mainly private rooms. The wing will also have a centralized nursing station for better staff efficiency and training space for staff. There will be 54 licensed beds; 48 of which are private rooms and three double rooms. The Care Center’s current average daily census is 40 residents.

The nursing home is being built on land owned by Crosby Senior Services, a partnership between CRMC and Presbyterian Homes & Services (PHS). When CRMC and PHS built Heartwood Senior Living Community in 2007, both organizations shared a vision to build a one-of-a-kind senior community where seniors could live with independence and dignity while receiving the comprehensive medical services they need. This project brings the vision to fruition.
