If my understanding is correct, the Lester Hammond Hall facility at 720 Sycamore is an interim facility owned and run by the Illinois Veterans Home in Quincy. Once new buildings are finished at the Veterans Home, this interim facility will no longer be used in its current capacity.
Has there been any discussion in the community about considering an Adams County nursing home run by the county? I am not saying this is a good or bad idea. Just something that maybe should be thought about and discussed openly.
I grew up in LaSalle County in Illinois, which does have a nursing facility run by the county.
I would hate to see this facility in our community go to waste. I hear stories about communities not having enough space for people. I don’t know if selling this facility to the high bidder like a privately run
organization would be in the community’s best interest.
