NCHS held an open house on Sunday, April 3rd, 2011 for the new 12-unit The Summerfield Assisted Living Facility. Speakers included Mayor Robert Stanley,
NCHS Administrator Cathy Swenson, a representative from State Senator Hoeven and Bill Devlin ND State Legislator.
"Seniors are the great majority of our population in McVille and Nelson County. Being able to provide them an assisted living facility so they can

The new assisted living center, located at 514 N. Olsgard St., is an addition to the NCHS Care Center, a 39-bed skilled nursing facility. It wraps
around the north side of the building, creating an outdoor courtyard for residents.
It is decorated in an arts and crafts décor, with featuring warm colors of tans, browns and adobe with rich walnut-color. Oak doors line the halls,
dining, and lounge and entrance areas. Skylights provide natural light in the main hallway. The building is equipped with a geothermal
heating/cooling system. It includes four two-bedroom and eight one-bedroom private rental apartments.
Contributions toward the building have come from: Nelson County Jobs Development Authority; the former McVille Development Corporation; and
the North Dakota Telephone Company. One benefactor, Carole Brown, a Rochester, MN resident whose parents, Charles and Clara Drew were
from McVille, donated a substantial amount that was used to furnish and decorate the common areas, including kitchen and dining rooms, as well
as a living room.
The Summerfield Assisted Living community reflects the attitudes of people who want an active lifestyle, knowing that they have access to a continuum of
