Our History

Doctors Nursing & Rehabilitation Center was established in 1972 by four local physicians with a desire to set a standard of excellence in skilled nursing services and long-term care.

Since that time Doctors Nursing & Rehabilitation has continued to meet the needs of the community. Now certified as a “whole-house” Medicare facility with a high acuity respiratory unit, Doctors continues to set the standard of care for tomorrow – today.

Because of our diverse services, we care for patients with a variety of skilled medical needs, including complex medical or respiratory illnesses, traumatic brain injuries, stroke recovery, post-surgical care, and orthopedic rehabilitation. Our comprehensive services focus on our patient’s physical, mental and emotional needs.

General Information

Doctors Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is a 120-bed skilled nursing facility, certified by Medicare and Medicaid. We are a proud member of the Illinois Healthcare Association.

Our nursing and rehabilitation services benefit patients who may no longer need treatment in a hospital setting, but require continued medical intervention or rehabilitation on a short-term basis, before returning home.

Long term care is also available for those who are suffering from a prolonged acute illness or chronic disease, or for those who simply can no longer live alone at home.

Our professional staff members – from our caregiving team to our friendly support staff – provide a compassionate and supportive environment for healing and recovery. Our caregivers are pre-screened prior to employment, and all are local people – neighbors and friends with hometown values - who are invested in the commitment to excellence for which our facility is known. We are fortunate that many of our staff members have been with us for several years, providing longevity and experience unique to our profession.

Patients and their families are encouraged to help us develop a plan of care that meets the patient’s physical, social and emotional needs. Whether your stay is short-term or long-term, we work together to help you settle in and feel at home with us.

For residents who plan to return home, we begin discharge planning right away to set realistic expectations and goals, and to coordinate care to ensure a safe return home. As discharge approaches, we may coordinate services through our partners in care to help you in the transition, and to provide continuity of care.

Doctors is one of several long-term care facilities owned or managed by HI Care Management, located in Springfield, Illinois. The principals of HI Care Management have extensive experience in long-term care, having served in key roles with the Illinois Department of Public Health. They continue work at the forefront of the industry, serving in leadership roles in state and national healthcare organizations to help foster reform, and improve the standards of resident care.


Nestled in a quiet neighborhood, Doctors Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is located at 1201 Hawthorn Road, just minutes from Salem Township Hospital, with nearby access to I-57. We primarily serve a tri-state area of Illinois, Missouri and Indiana. However, it is not uncommon for us to receive referrals from across the nation.

For families who reside out of town, Doctors has arranged a special hotel rate at the Salem Super 8 Motel. Reservations may be made by calling the motel directly at (618) 548-5882. The Motel is located just minutes from the facility.
