The City of Dunseith purchased the Nursing Home in 1974 and has been responsible for operating it since that time. There is a Management Agreement with the Heart of America Medical Association from Rugby that has been in place since 1990. An Advisory Board has been appointed by the City Council to supervise the operation which meets on a monthly basis to assist in the management in the operation.

The mission of the Nursing Home is to provide Long Term Skilled Nursing Care to our residents. This facility provides a much needed service to our community which has given us good support for many years. We provide licensed professional nurses, nursing aids, rehab aids, certified activities director, licensed social worker, and complete dining room services including registered dietitian and certified dietary manager to accomplish our mission. We are licensed by the North Dakota Department of Health which surveys the operation every year. The Nursing home is also approved by Medicare and Medicaid. We are currently licensed to care for 35 residents and do that by providing 19 single rooms and 8 double rooms.

The Nursing Home provided employment to 58 individuals which is very important to our community. All full range of skills is necessary to meet the requirements of the North Dakota Department of Health and are proud to say our employees meet all of those requirements.

We have always had very good community support. The church clergy provides religious services, some of the local church ladies assist with food, entertainment, and group activities. There is a Nursing Home Auxiliary organization which is also very important to the home. They help in raising needed funds for resident activities and were recently involved in helping purchase new furniture and drapes for our lounge area. This organization was recently recognized as the Volunteer of the Year by the North Dakota Long Term Care Association which we are very proud of. Over the years, we have also received many monetary gifts from community individuals. In appreciation for this community support, the Nursing Home invites local people to a supper and entertainment every year. This is always done during Nursing Home Week.

We are excited about providing the best service we can to our community. If you have a need for our services or can assist you in any way, please contact our Social Worker or Administrator. We welcome visitors anytime.
