Catholic Eldercare breaks ground on transitional care unit

A project aimed to address the need for transitional care in the metro area had its groundbreaking and dedication ceremony Oct. 20 at Catholic Eldercare’s main campus in northeast Minneapolis.

The 40,000-square foot addition will include a 24-bed rehabilitation wing to provide transitional care for patients after surgery or an illness.

“This will be the only TCU in Northeast, and it will draw patients from downtown Minneapolis and the surrounding suburbs as well,” said Dan Johnson, chief executive officer. “They can stay close to home and receive the care they need. Transitional care is important for reducing complications that can result in costly and inconvenient rehospitalizations.”

The addition also will include a “better-configured” space for the adult day services program, Catholic Eldercare by Day. During construction, the program will be temporarily located at RiverVillage East, 2919 Randolph St. NE in Minneapolis.

The senior housing and services provider expects to open its $9 million transitional care and adult day facility next fall.
