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..
