Staff Report: JDC CLosure Would Create Hardships, Recommends Not Closing


The staff of a state board has recommended against Governor Pat Quinn’s plan to close the Jacksonville Developmental Center.

 

That staff report from the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board finds that closing JDC would create hardships for residents and their families.

 

Quinn wants to close JDC and move its residents to smaller, community-based settings, but the board staff found that the state has not identified an adequate number of suitable facilities to handle the JDC population.

 

The staff report is a recommendation… but a final decision is up to the board itself, when it meets at the end of the month.
