Madonna Living Community

Caring for Others 
Our rich history and mission of caring for others began in 1967. Many changes and expansions later, Madonna Living Community; Madonna Towers and Madonna Meadows of Rochester and Madonna Summit of Byron continue the mission to serve Rochester and Byron seniors, as well as others that move to the area to be near family and excellent medical care, or transitioning thru our community for extended therapy treatments after a medical discharge before returning home.  We are a continuum care campus with senior living services. Delivering compassionate care that’s rooted in our Catholic values, we’re affiliated with the non-profit Benedictine Health System. We are committed to serving everyone of all denominations in a friendly environment with a true sense of community.

Our System 
Our corporate office is located in Duluth, Minnesota. The Benedictine Health System is sponsored by the Benedictine Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery. As one of the largest Catholic senior care organizations in the United States, we have approximately 40 senior care facilities in Minnesota, North Dakota, Missouri, Wisconsin, South Dakota, and Illinois. 

Our Mission and Values 
Based on the Gospel and Chapter 36 of the Rule of St. Benedict, our Mission and Values direct our compassionate care. Hospitality, Stewardship, Respect and Justice, our Benedictine Core Values, guide us every day as we deliver senior housing and senior care.
