The Illinois Health Care Association (IHCA) recently announced Coulterville Rehabilitation & Health Care Center in Coulterville, Illinois, as the winner of the 2019 IHCA Excellence Award for Long Term Care Centers.

“This award highlights the outstanding care offered in our centers across the state,” stated IHCA Executive Director Matthew Hartman. “It takes into consideration the procedures and practices put in place by facilities to ensure their residents are receiving quality care around the clock.”
Coulterville Rehabilitation & Health Care Center has been providing excellent service in long term care for more than 14 years. The 75-bed skilled nursing center provides various services and amenities for residents, including physical, occupational and speech therapies, advanced wound care, pain management, balance training, respite care and more.

In addition, Coulterville has received both the Bronze and Silver National Quality Awards from the American Health Care Association (AHCA) and the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL), the leading association for long term and post-acute care.
