State Board Meets Today To Decide Fate of JDC

The state Health Facilities and Services Review Board meets today to consider whether to grant a permit for the Quinn administration to proceed with moving residents out of the Jacksonville Developmental Center and shutting the facility down.


Opponents of the move say residents were still being moved out over the weekend… including some being transferred to other large state facilities, instead of the smaller group-home settings that Quinn says are a better alternative than institutions like JDC.


The board today will decide whether to accept the recommendations of its professional staff, which says JDC should not be closed because there are not enough adequate facilities to care for its entire population.
