Our History

Sunnyside started first as a TB (tuberculosis) sanitarium in 1916. In 1951, the sanitarium was converted to a nursing home that was jointly owned by Becker and Clay Counties until 1966 when Becker County bought Clay County’s share of the facility. In 1973, a resolution was passed to build a new building and in 1975, residents moved into the current building. In 1991, Sunnyside entered into a management agreement with the Board of Social Ministry, now known as Ecumen; a partnership that has proven beneficial for a quarter of a century. Today, Sunnyside is honored to continue providing quality care to enrich the lives of those we serve.

Through love and compassion, our goal is to create a family-centered community; to participate in the traditions in our community; and to encourage continuing innovation.
