At Mayo Clinic Health System’s care center in Lake City, we work hard to be the best option to home for various types of residents, including:
- Residents of all ages who need long-term care because they can no longer live at home due to illness, injury or health difficulties
- Residents of all ages who need long or short-term care while recovering from an illness or injury
- Residents who need respiratory and wound care
The needs of our residents always come first, and we work hard to provide excellent care and service. At any given time, as many as 90 people call the care center their home. Since we opened in 1978, we’ve served thousands.
The care center is connected to the clinic and hospital, so residents don't have to leave the building for a clinic appointment or emergency care if needed.
Our basic services include 24-hour nursing care, nutritionally well-balanced meals, housekeeping and laundry services, social services, transportation and a robust schedule of activities.
Mayo Clinic Health System owns and operates the care center. The affiliation with Mayo Clinic provides residents with high-quality local care and easy access to specialists at Mayo Clinic when needed. The staff and daily operations of the care center are managed by Ebenezer, a Minneapolis-based long-term care organization.

Nursing home services are provided by Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic Health System providers.
