Our History

Evergreen Nursing & Rehabilitation Center was established in 1974 by a group of civil-minded individuals with a desire to set a standard of excellence in skilled nursing services and long-term care.

Since that time Evergreen Nursing & Rehabilitation has continued to meet the needs of the community by providing quality long and short term care. We now offer private short-term Medicare suites. Evergreen continues to meet the needs of the community, and exceed the expectations of those we serve.

Because of our diverse services, we care for patients with a variety of skilled medical needs, including complex medical or respiratory illnesses, traumatic brain injuries, stroke recovery, post-surgical care, and orthopedic rehabilitation. Our comprehensive services focus on our patient’s physical, mental and emotional needs.

General Information

Evergreen Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is a 120-bed skilled nursing facility, certified by Medicare and Medicaid. We are a member of the Illinois Healthcare Association.

Our nursing and rehabilitation services benefit patients who may no longer need treatment in a hospital setting, but require continued medical intervention or rehabilitation on a short-term basis, before returning home.

Long term care is also available for those who are suffering from a prolonged acute illness or chronic disease, or for those who simply can no longer live alone at home.

Our professional staff members – from our caregiving team to our friendly support staff – provide a compassionate and supportive environment for healing and recovery. Our caregivers are pre-screened prior to employment, and they have a commitment to provide the very best care possible for our residents. We are fortunate that many of our staff members have been with us for several years, providing longevity and experience unique to our profession.

Patients and their families are encouraged to help us develop a plan of care that meets the patient’s physical, social and emotional needs. Whether your stay is short-term or long-term, we work together to help you settle in and feel at home with us.

For residents who plan to return home, we begin discharge planning right away to set realistic expectations and goals, and to coordinate care to ensure a safe return home. As discharge approaches, we may coordinate services through our partners in care to help you in the transition, and to provide continuity of care.

Evergreen is one of several long-term care facilities owned or managed by HI Care Management, located in Springfield, Illinois. The principals of HI Care Management have extensive experience in long-term care, having served in key roles with the Illinois Department of Public Health. They continue work at the forefront of the industry, serving in leadership roles in state and national healthcare organizations to help foster reform, and improve the standards of resident care.
