The "Hyatt" name and Annette's family

The Hyatt House is a family owned and operated business. The name "Hyatt House" was chosen in memory of our dear Grandmother/Great-Grandmother Gladys and her family, whose last name was Hyatt.

We began preparing our first assisted living home in Park Rapids, MN in November of 2004 and our first resident joined us on the following Valentine's Day!

It has been a joy to have many new faces join our family ever since!

We have a total of over 40 years combined experience in the assisted living and business industry within our family and we look forward to meeting the many new residents who will be joining us over the years!
