In 2003, a Minnesota businessman named John Wedum, who had cancer and was facing the end of his life, received in-home hospice care from Allina Health Hospice. In his honor, the J.A. Wedum Foundation issued a challenge grant to Allina Health Hospice to build a 12-bed residential hospice.

In April 2011, the J.A. Wedum Foundation and Allina Health began construction on the residential hospice. The J.A. Wedum Residential Hospice opened its doors to the community and began accepting patients in February 2012.
