ST. CLOUD – CentraCare is looking to sell some of its properties in central Minnesota.
The organization is looking for a new owner to take over all of its community facilities in Saint-Benoît, including care centres, assisted living facilities and residences for the elderly in Monticello, Sartell and Saint-Cloud.
On September 15, CentraCare’s board of directors approved the decision to sell the properties to someone else specializing in senior care, which would allow CentraCare to focus more on primary and specialty care.
The healthcare organization is still in the early stages of the process, but says any potential buyer must be committed to providing quality care, accepting patients discharged from other CentraCare facilities, have a solid financial base and maintain existing Catholic heritage.
CentraCare previously transferred ownership of some of its other long-term care and senior housing facilities in Paynesville and Long Prairie.
