Welcome to the Essentia Health-Northern Pines Care Center. When you turn on to our wooded drive, you’ll know we’re not like other long-term care facilities or nursing homes. Our 33-bed facility sits in a gorgeous natural setting on the outskirts of Aurora, Minnesota. We’re also on the same campus as Essentia Health-Northern Pines hospital and clinic.
Inside, the difference comes through in how we treat our residents. We honor and respect all persons we care for—as if we were caring for our own family. We also have certified dementia care experts on staff. Trust our kind, professional staff to help you or your loved one lead the best life possible.
