Saint Anne of Winona Honored with Benedictine Living Community Designation

Duluth, Minn. – The Benedictine Health System recognized Saint Anne of Winona, for substantially meeting all of the core elements of the Benedictine Living Community model.

Rand Gettler, Saint Anne of Winona’s CEO/administrator, was presented with a special plaque honoring the recognition at the Benedictine Health System Leadership Conference conducted last week in Duluth.

“The Benedictine Living Community model places a priority on care for the aging that brings health, independence, and choice to senior living,” said Steve Chies, BHS senior vice president, long term care operations. “In addition to providing access to a full spectrum of high quality services in a modern, safe and comforting environment, privacy and dignity of the individual resident is a focus within the Benedictine Living Community.”

To achieve Benedictine Living Community model requirements, a campus must demonstrate that it meets specific elements in the areas of mission, people, customer satisfaction, financial, physical plant, services provided and quality.

“I am very proud of my staff and our residents for this recognition.” Said Rand Gettler Administrator/CEO at Saint Anne’s.

“The BHS Board and entire organization congratulates Rand and the entire Saint Anne’s leadership team for this achievement,” Chies added.

Saint Anne of Winona joins seven other BHS facilities in achieving this designation – in Minnesota, Cerenity Senior Care – Marian of St. Paul, Cerenity Senior Care – White Bear Lake, Madonna Living Community, Rochester, St. Brigid’s at Hi-Park, Red Wing, St. Gertrude’s Health & Rehabilitation Center, Shakopee, and in North Dakota, St. Benedict’s Health Center, Dickinson.

The Benedictine Health System (BHS) is a Catholic, mission-directed, values-based health care system that spans the full spectrum of long-term care. Sponsored by St. Scholastica Monastery, BHS owns and/or manages more than 40 long-term care facilities - nursing homes, assisted living and independent senior housing options in seven states.
