CHICAGO – DECEMBER 7, 2022 – Ziegler, a specialty investment bank, is pleased to announce its role as exclusive financial advisor to Pinecrest Community, a 192-unit senior living community (the “Community”) located on 40 acres in Mount Morris, Illinois.

Pinecrest Community is a Christian not-for-profit continuing care retirement community affiliated with the Church of the Brethren. For over 125 years, the Community, located in northwestern Illinois, just south of Rockford, has been serving the region with best-in-class retirement and nursing home care.

Originally established by the Church of the Brethren as “Brethren Home,” to care for the elderly and orphans in 1893, Pinecrest has developed into a vibrant Community for seniors. Campus features active-adult cottage homes, independent apartments, intermediate and skilled care living, and a specialized Alzheimer’s/Dementia care center. The Community also serves as the cultural focal point for the Village of Mt. Morris and is home to a large community theatre, public gym and retail spaces.

Allure Healthcare Services, a Chicago-based long term care operator, purchased the property and took over operations on December 2, 2022. Allure now operates nine (9) skilled nursing and senior living communities throughout Illinois.    

Ziegler conducted a thorough marketing process that included both not-for-profit and for-profit suitors. Ultimately, Allure impressed the Pinecrest Board with its skilled care programming and commitment to continue providing quality of care to northwestern Illinois seniors.
Nick Glaisner, Director in Ziegler’s Senior Housing & Care Finance Practice commented, “Like a lot of providers, Pinecrest found itself on shaky financial footing coming out of COVID. Allure will breathe new life-into the community and is committed to continuing the legacy and strong reputation Pinecrest Community staff members have worked so hard to build and maintain.”
