Mental Health Facilities
Gov. Pat Quinn announced Thursday that he plans to close a Tinley Park mental hospital and a Jacksonville center for people with developmental disabilities as he ramps up efforts to move people out of state institutions and into group homes or other kinds of community care.
Gov. Pat Quinn signed a budget deal into effect Monday aimed at avoiding the closure of seven mental health centers.
There is hope for the seven state facilities that Gov. Pat Quinn wants to close.
Former patients, community groups and officials of hospitals in the south suburbs on Tuesday asked a legislative committee not to close the Tinley Park Mental Health Center.
