On June 30, Eventide Senior Living Communities, based in Moorhead, Minn., and West Fargo, N.D., expects to officially purchase Hi-Acres Manor of Jamestown. Hi-Acres Manor is a for-profit,family-owned company led by Gary Riffe, who will continue to stay on in a leadership role.
Hi-Acres is a 142-bed nursing care facility, which also has a senior living duplex and apartments, situated in the northeast sector of Jamestown. It was founded in 1962. There are 250 employees serving residents at Hi-Acres Manor. All employees will remain employed.
"Our success is all about taking care of people. It's been a shared vision by all of our employees, some who have been devoted to our mission for decades," said Riffe. "The Hi-Acres Manor goal has always been to provide quality care for our residents. This commitment is unwavering as we take this step in building a solid future with Eventide."
"The expertise that Hi-Acres Manor brings to this new partnership is what was the most appealing aspect," said Jon Riewer, president of Eventide. "Our combined knowledge base will make us better together. It just makes perfect sense for our growth as we plan for our future."
The Eventide Senior Living Facilities are a not-for-profit organization with a Lutheran foundation, serving more than 650 residents on three campuses in the Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo community.

The Hi-Acres Manor name will switch to Eventide at Hi-Acres Manor on July 1. Opportunities for additional services at Hi-Acres Manor will continue to be explored, one being adding a transitional care unit (TCU). TCUs are gaining in popularity and necessity.
