Monarch to Buy Five Ecumen Properties 

Ecumen, one of the nation’s largest senior housing providers with operations in seven states, is selling Ecumen New Richland, an assisted living community New Richland, Minnesota, to Monarch Healthcare Management, Mankato, on July 1. Ecumen is also selling three other assisted living centers in Le Center, Lake Crystal and Mapleton—all in Minnesota—to Monarch. A nursing home located in Litchfield is also part of the sale.

Monarch currently owns seven assisted living and rehabilitation care sites in Mankato, New Prague and Lake Crystal. Monarch plans to retain Ecumen employees at the five facilities—roughly 200 people. 

“This deal makes sense for both Ecumen and Monarch—companies with different business strategies,” Ecumen CEO Kathryn Roberts said in a statement. “Ecumen has been diversifying its portfolio in recent years, moving strategically into some larger markets and putting more emphasis on market-rate housing, home care and hospice. Monarch has chosen a widely different niche, strategically focusing on smaller markets with an emphasis on nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and assisted living communities.”
