Known initially as Illini House and Rutledge Manor, Heritage Health – Springfield has had a positive presence in the Springfield community for nearly 35 years. In 1983, Heritage Operations Group came in to manage the location and now works in partnership with Memorial Medical Center to bring ideal senior care services to Sangamon County residents. 

Heritage Health is located at 900 North Rutledge, which is in very close proximity to both Memorial Medical Center as well as St. John’s Hospital. Many of our seniors come to us after a hospital stay. It can be hard to recover after a surgery or illness. We offer Medicare, Medicaid, VA, and private insurance benefits. And, we have an excellent on-site therapy department providing physical, occupational, speech, and respiratory therapies for our residents. Private therapy suites are available.

In addition to senior therapy services, additional on-site skilled nursing services include:  

  • IV care and CADD Pumps infusion needs
  • Tube feeding and management
  • Diabetes and insulin management
  • Special diets and fluid restriction needs
  • Labs, X-Rays, and EKGs
  • Catheter and drain management
  • Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC management)
  • VORHA Wound Center of Excellence

Many who have served our country are eligible for nursing home benefits that work to cover or offset the costs of senior care. Heritage Health honors our veterans by offering a dedicated wing for our senior veterans. In addition, we are the only nursing facility in Springfield that contracts with the Veterans Association (VA). We are proud to offer every advantage possible to those who have served our country.

One of the many things that we’re known for is our spacious, private RESTORE therapy suites. These large and comfortable rooms enable our seniors to recover and their families to relax. Schedule a tour today to see why so many area families choose us for their senior care needs.
