Below is the article from the East Central Minnesota Post Review:

Ecumen, an innovative non-profit provider of senior services has operated Villages of North Branch since 2007.
Villages of North Branch is now joining the senior living communities across Ecumen in a shared brand and visual identity under the Ecumen name. The services and housing that Ecumen provides on what was formerly the “Villages” campus will be branded under the name of Ecumen North Branch.

“With housing and services statewide, including Ecumen Parmly LifePointes in nearby Chisago City, we need to make it easier for people across the region to know who we are and the services that Ecumen offers for older adults and their families,” said Pat Voelker, administrator of Ecumen North Branch.

In addition to new outdoor signage, the new Ecumen North Branch name and logo will be on all stationery, brochures, forms, and the Ecumen North Branch Web site,

Only the name changes. Ecumen North Branch will continue providing compassionate, personalized services and care, through exceptional housing options, memory care, care center and rehabilitation services, and other valuable services for their customers and their families.

The Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal named Ecumen as one of Minnesota’s “Best Places to Work” for the past six straight years, and was recently named by the Star Tribune as one of Minnesota’s “Top 100 Workplaces” in 2011.
