St. Joseph’s Home under new management

st josephs home 2015A Minneapolis firm has assumed management of St. Joseph’s Home in Springfield. The 84-bed facility was founded in 1903 by the Sisters of St. Francis of the Immaculate Conception.

“We are happy to draw on the expertise of Health Dimensions Group … in our mission to provide the aging and their families with compassionate and individualized care … ,” said Sister M. Lenore Highland, OSF, administrator. “We believe that this change in management will allow our mission to continue into the future.”

The agreement with Health Dimensions Group (HDG) was effective on April 19.

“We’re delighted and honored to be a part of the Springfield community,” said HDG Regional Director of Operations Vicki Grant. “We look forward to furthering the mission of the sisters to ensure a successful community.”

The not-for-profit is licensed to provide sheltered and intermediate care and also provides sheltered care for individuals who are independent but may need personal assistance at times; and intermediate care for those who need a higher level of health supervision and assistance with personal care.

HDG, one of the nation’s leading post-acute, long-term care and senior living management and consulting firms, is a values-based organization with a nearly 20-year tradition of operating and managing skilled nursing and senior living communities.
