Nursing center in Illinois to close
Westmoreland Nursing Center in Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital will close its rehabilitation and outpatient facilities Dec. 31.
The 13 residents will need to find a new place to live by August 31, according to local reports. Northwestern is planning to open a new Lake Forest Hospital, which would lead to demolishing the old building that contained Westmoreland, executives said. All residents are expected to transfer to a skilled nursing facility, which may include Presbyterian Homes Lake Forest Place, on a parcel adjacent the hospital's property..
