Soldiers Grove nursing home faces sale rather than closure


Sannes Skogdalen Heim nursing home in Soldiers Grove is owned by Community Health Services, which also runs the Prairie Maison nursing home in Prairie du Chien.

By Charley Preusser, Crawford County Independent

North Shore Healthcare is in the process of acquiring the Sannes Skogdalen-Heim Nursing Home in Soldiers Grove, according to David Mills, a managing partner of that Milwaukee-based company.

North Shore Healthcare currently owns 44 long-term care nursing homes in Wisconsin. They essentially more than doubled the number of facilities under their control, when a deal to acquire 28 facilities from the failing Fortis Management went into effect at midnight Sunday, Oct. 1.

With that acquisition, North Shore Healthcare now has more than 3,000 employees, Mills noted. By November 1, the company plans to have closed on the Sannes Skogdalen acquisition.
