Illinois: Danville nursing home files plan to close due to staffing shortage
DANVILLE — One of Danville’s five nursing homes has filed a voluntary closure plan with the state.
Gardenview Manor, 14792 Catlin Tilton Road, submitted its closure documents on Monday, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health.
The 213-bed facility is set to close on or before Aug. 13, according to its closure plan.
The Danville nursing home is a facility of Premier Healthcare of Illinois, which also operates Champaign Urbana Nursing & Rehab in Savoy.
According to the proposed resident-relocation notification letter submitted with the closure plan, the reason for the closing is staffing challenges.
“Due to staffing challenges, which were secondary to the pandemic, the facility has decided to close,” states the letter signed by Kathy Eyre, relocation manager for Skokie-based Premier Healthcare Management.
