LETTER: New ownership at former Berkshire site

To the Editor:


Effective Aug. 1, 2013, Villa Healthcare is excited to inform you that we have assumed ownership of Berkshire Residence Board and Care in Osseo. Effective immediately, the facility will be known as: The Villa at Osseo.

With the transition of ownership, The Villa at Osseo will become part of a post-acute rehabilitation and long-term care organization committed to the highest quality care for its patients and residents. We will have the financial ability to address the future needs as it relates to ambiance, services/amenities, and clinical programming. In addition, we will be adding a Medicare unit in order to serve those clients needing physical, occupational or speech therapies.

Villa Healthcare is an operator of skilled nursing facilities and senior housing communities in the Midwest, with facilities located in four states. We are excited about the opportunities in the Minneapolis and St. Paul market and working with the great healthcare providers locally.

As we work to improve the care of our patients and residents, and the environment in which they reside, we invite you to visit us. Please feel free to contact The Villa at Osseo directly at 763-425-3939.
