The 50-year history of Ecumen Detroit Lakes is a compelling story of transformation from nursing home to state-of-the-art community health care hub. Detroit Lakes Online tells the story of how in 1964 a community in dire need of a long-term care center pulled together, going door-to-door to raise the money. Now, a half century later, Ecumen Detroit Lakes is evolving into a national model for rural healthcare delivery. On June 20, Detroit Lakes will celebrate this story of civic involvement as it prepares for the next 50 years with the opening of the new Ecumen care center this fall.
