Pride Group To Shut Down Local Residential Treatment Facility In Former Oak Haven Building

Wed 3-29-2017

(Spirit Lake)-- The company that operates a residential treatment facility out of a building that formerly housed the Oak Haven Care Facility, which prior to that was known as the Dickinson County Home, have announced they'll be shutting down their local operation. The board of directors of Pride Group announced in a statement issued March 25th that a restructuring of the company will result in the facility, which is located between Spirit Lake and Okoboji, closing.

Pride Group will also be closing its West Cedar unit on the campus of the Mental Health Institute at Cherokee.

Pride Group officials say the restructuring stems from changes in Iowa Medicaid along with a change in state rules that will go in effect in March of 2019.

Pride Group officials say the local facility will stay open pending relocation of the residents.

Pride Group has been operating out of the former Oak Haven building, which is owned by Dickinson county, since June of 2010.
