In 1966, patients needing convalescent and rehabilitative care moved into a facility added to the hospital; it has since been renovated and now houses Lake Winona Manor, a long-term care skilled nursing facility. Adith Miller Manor, an assisted living facility for those needing memory care, was added in 1992, with Roger Metz Manor built in 1997. Watkins Manor, a former nursing home now remodeled into an assisted living community for independent seniors, joined Winona Health in 1999.
Winona Health was formed as an “umbrella” nonprofit organization for the growing healthcare services provided to the region. It continues to be operated by a local volunteer Board of Directors. The Winona Health Foundation, whose mission is to financially support the work of the Winona Health nonprofit organization, was formed in 1996. It, too, is served by a local volunteer board.
