Health Care Center Transition

We're closing our skilled nursing & rehab facility

For nearly three decades, Ida Culver House Broadview has maintained its strong reputation for compassionate nursing care. In recent years, a number of external factors have driven us to evaluate our skilled nursing and rehab services, including market trends, reimbursement rate challenges, and regulatory complexity. After many months of careful thought and deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation operations in the Health Care Center (HCC). We plan to repurpose the space in the HCC to introduce new services that will enable us to provide residents at Ida Culver House Broadview and other Era Living managed retirement communities with higher levels of assisted living and memory care. This change will enable more residents to continue living on our campus and under Era Living care as they require a higher level of assisted living services. This transition will occur over the next few months.

Background for Decision:

As the aging population has changed over the years, we have come to recognize that while there is certainly a need for Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs), there is also a much greater, more pressing need for high acuity assisted living and secured memory care. The majority of the people we turn away or who we can no longer serve in assisted living and independent living are not those who need a skilled nursing environment, but rather a residential setting to meet their higher care needs. Additionally, most people prefer a residential setting over a clinical one when feasible.

We recognize the significance of this change and are prepared to assist employees and residents with the impact it may have on their personal needs/situation.
