Save Hope Creek Care Center

Save Hope Creek Care Center

HOPE CREEK CARE CENTER IS A CLEAN, FRIENDLY, HIGH QUALITY NURSING CARE FACILITY.

Hope Creek the county-owned nursing home in East Moline is in financial trouble. Part of the problem being money caught in the state of Illinois’ poor cash flow, and not enough personnel to process the claims. “Even with reimbursements from Medicaid, it is costing the county about $70 dollars/person for care”; as stated by Trudy Whittington, administrator on 10/11/2013.

Hope Creek provides residents with health care, health education, physical therapy, personal care, nursing care and/or assistance with everyday living.

Eventhough the center is going thru a rough patch right now, their high level of care continues.

There are about 245 people residing at Hope Creek Care Center and more than 250 people working there. It has been projected that next year their budget will have a deficit of $2.5 million due to Rock Island County receiving $70 less than what the cost per patient is through Medicaid in Illinois.

Part of our taxes go to the county nursing home...the community owns that home...not any one of the board members voting on the fate of Hope Creek.

Referendums have shown people want Rock Island County to keep Hope Creek. 

"Communities need to have facilities like Hope Creek to provide assistance and care for the elderly," says Mike Deines, whose mother resides at Hope Creek.”

People of the community please sign the petition to support keeping Hope Creek open for our residents and save 250+ jobs.

Respectfully,

 

Donald E. Lind

      I may end up in a home some day and if I do I'd like it to be one that has the kind of staff and support that Hope Creek does.

      My aunt is a resident there,and I believe Hope Creek is one of the best nursing homes in the area. The staff cares about their residents,and provides activities,to encourage interaction,And individual contributions to the activities is supported and encouraged by staff! As well as providing therapy,healthcare,personal care,and assisting with every day living! My aunt is happy there. Being newer buidings, and having lots of glass, it is bright and cheerful and they keep it so clean! I hope they vote to have rock island county keep it open! They have a great nursing home! Don't throw it away! Consider the residents,the staff!!
