Our History

Clinton Manor opened its doors in 1969 as a Shelter Care Facility for 43 persons. In the early 1970ís, it changed its license to become a Long Term Care Facility and added additional beds to total 69 residents. In the mid 1980ís, Clinton Manor became a specialized facility supporting persons with Developmental Disabilities, but continued to provide a small unit for senior citizens as an Intermediate Care Facility. In 1988, Clinton Manor was purchased by Southern Illinois Living Centers, Inc., and in 1990 an addition was built to increase services to 50 persons with Developmental Disabilities and 30 senior citizens. Many renovations and additions have been done over the pasts several years.

In 2000, Clinton Manor Living Center converted the 30 beds for Senior Citizens to provide care to some persons requiring more skilled care and became a Medicare provider. In 2004, it added a new separate building to house the Laundry and Maintenance Department. Today, Clinton Manor Living Center is divided into 2 separate living areas; 1 being a 39-bed skilled nursing facility, the other is a 51-bed intermediate care facility for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ICF-ID/DD).
