North Memorial ambulance workers prepared to transport a resident from North Ridge Health and Rehabilitation in New Hope on Wednesday.

A Twin Cities nursing home with a troubled regulatory past has become the site of one of the state's largest coronavirus outbreaks - continuing a deadly trend among senior facilities with poor health and safety records.

At North Ridge Health and Rehab, a large senior community in New Hope with a 320-bed nursing home, 44 residents have died and another 68 have been sickened by the COVID-19 respiratory illness in recent weeks. Only one other senior facility in the state has seen more fatalities from the virus.
