DETROIT LAKES, MN, December 21, 2021 — Ecumen Detroit Lakes in Detroit Lakes, Minn., has again received a “Best Nursing Home” rating for its Emmanuel Nursing Home by U.S. News & World Report magazine. The magazine evaluated more than 15,000 facilities throughout the country, rating most of them in the areas of short-term rehabilitation and long-term care. Ecumen Detroit Lakes received a “high performance” rating — the highest designation possible — in both areas, an honor received by less than 5 percent of those evaluated.

“We are honored to be once again named by the U.S. News & World Report as one of the best nursing homes in Minnesota. This achievement is a direct reflection of our amazing team members who provide excellent care to our residents. Our team members are the true recipients of this honor,” said Danielle Olson, Executive Director of Ecumen Detroit Lakes. “We also want to thank our Detroit Lakes community for entrusting their loved ones to us for more than half a century. Now more than ever, we have relied upon our community to navigate through these uncharted waters. Thank you for your support through the years,” said Danielle Olson.

U.S. News compiles its rating information in a national Nursing Home Finder that offers comprehensive information about care, safety, health inspections, staffing and more for almost all nursing homes in the country. This tool provides customized searches for nursing homes by location, Medicare and Medicaid coverage, Alzheimer’s care and size. The Nursing Home Finder reflects U.S. News’s analysis of data collected and published by the federal government using a methodology defined by U.S. News.

Since their inception in 2009, the U.S. News Best Nursing Home ratings have relied on data from Nursing Home Compare, a program run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes.
