About Oak Hills

Oak Hills Living Center originated as a replacement to Highland Manor Nursing Home. Highland Manor began providing long term care to seniors in New Ulm and the surrounding communities in 1958. On July 1st, 1995, Oak Hills Living Center opened its doors to 94 seniors as a replacement to Highland Manor. Later that year, it welcomed 16 seniors to the Oak Hills Assisted Living facility.

In 2000, Oak Hills Living Center was awarded a grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to add additional assisted living apartments. On November 1, 2003 the additional 16 apartments opened.

In 2008 the facility was completely remodeled, enabling moving away from an institutional model to more of a “home-like” environment. This culture change created five households of 16-22 residents; creating a relaxed neighborhood atmosphere embraced by residents, staff and visitors alike.

In recent years, with an emphasis on serving as a “living center” dedicated to bridging generations, Oak Hills has expanded other of its services indicative of embracing that mission:  It established a new therapy area as a hub particularly for those transitional short-term residents there between hospital and home.  With a separate entrance, it enables a comfortable environment somewhat different from that in the long-term care neighborhoods.  Hospice care is another offering that further “bridges generations.” Recognizing that with certain in-the-home services, area residents’ ability to stay in their homes longer can be enhanced, Oak Hills now offers home health services.  And finally, from a business perspective, to maximize use of its kitchen facilities and staff, it has also launched a catering business.

Oak Hills Living Center is a non-profit facility whose operations are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.  It also has a Memorial Foundation with a separate Board of Directors.  The present campus and its respective expansions were all made possible by the generosity of donors from New Ulm and the surrounding area.

New Ulm Medical Center is a nonprofit hospital and clinic serving the region in and around Brown County located in south central Minnesota. We offer an extensive range of care options with over 30 affiliated physicians and a full complement of visiting specialists. New Ulm Medical Center (NUMC) in Minnesota was named one of theTop 20 Critical Access Hospitals in the United States by The Chartis Center for Rural Health for the eight time in nine years. NUMC is the only hospital in Minnesota to make this list eight times
