Nestled in the beautiful lake country of northwest Minnesota, Ecumen Detroit Lakes is a warm and welcoming community with contemporary décor and a full continuum of care. The nursing home is in the center of our campus and includes a welcoming entry where light streams in from floor-to-ceiling windows in a bright hallway lined with benches, while the lobby area features a fireplace and comfortable armchairs.
