A North Dakota business recently purchased the Sartell property formerly known as Legends at Heritage Place.
Edgewood REIT purchased the property at 637 Brianna Drive on April 20 and entered into a long-term agreement to lease the property to Edgewood Healthcare System based in Grand Forks, according to a news release by Edgewood Management Group.
The property is now called Edgewood Senior Living in Sartell and will offer 48 assisted-living apartments and 49 memory-care apartments, according to the property’s executive director, Amanda Vandermay. It will also offer short-term stays.
“We are excited to welcome The Legends of Heritage Place to the Edgewood family,” said Russel Kubic, president of Edgewood Management Group. “We intend to continue offering high-quality, consistent and innovative care to these residents and families today and for years to come.”
Edgewood would not mention any planned changes other than some initial cosmetic updates and the name change.
Edgewood Management operates more than 55 independent, assisted-living and memory-care properties with more than 3,600 beds and more than 2,600 employees in seven states (Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho)
