by Ken Haggerty
Angels Care Center, which was sold by Volunteers of America in December of 2013, is changing its name to Diamond Rehab and Living of Cannon Valley and will be renovating the facility.
"Since the change of ownership in December, we have been analyzing our facility and the surrounding area to see how we can better meet the needs of our residents and the community," said Kristi Umberger, executive director. "We are very excited to announce some big changes, recent and upcoming, to our facility."
Umberger says they will be beginning renovations on the facility in an effort to update and create a better living environment for our residents. "We are still in the planning phases of this project and hope to have a finalized plan to begin this summer," said Umberger.
"With these exciting changes, we believe it is important to create our own mark on the community. Our first change will be changing our name from Angels Care Center to Diamond Rehab and Living of Cannon Valley," said Umberger.
The facility is hosting an open house with a chance to meet new team members, hear about some of the changes coming, and enjoy some community fellowship. It will be held on Thursday, June 12, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the facility peace garden.

Angels Care and another facility run by Volunteers of America, Crystal Care Center in Crystal, MN were sold late last year to Diamond Healthcare Management. The Cannon Falls nursing care facility has in the past maintained 34 semi-private rooms, 21 private rooms, and a memory care unit. Total units has been listed around 90.
The facility, located on the west side of Cannon Falls, north of the intersection of Hwys. 52 and 19, opened in 1977 as the Cannon Manor Nursing Home. Bob Odell sold the facility in 1996 to the Sisters of St. Francis. It was sold to VOA in 2001.
