Ecumen Scenic Shores in Two Harbors Awarded VA Contract For Nursing Care

Veterans in the Two Harbors area will now be eligible to receive skilled nursing care at Ecumen Scenic Shores reimbursed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).  Previously, Duluth was the closest site for veterans to receive VA-reimbursed skilled nursing care.

“We are honored to better serve the Veterans of our community who have sacrificed so much,” said Blaine Gamst, executive director at Ecumen Scenic Shores.

Also, under the new VA contract, which was effective October 15, 2013, any Veteran needing hospice services will be 100% covered.
