Shuttered nursing home under safety investigation
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
The Illinois Department of Public Health tells us Oak Terrace HealthCare Center has been under investigation since August.
The nursing home suddenly closed Thursday amidst what we’re told are financial issues, displacing several residents and workers.
The investigation is looking into the structural safety of the building.
The Department of Public Health says they got official notice the nursing home was closing this week.
State law requires a nursing home to give at least 60 days’ notice if they have to close.
The health department says they will let us know as soon as the results of their investigation come in.
