Our Commitment to Care

So much of who we are comes from an integrated organization dedicated to compassionate care.

Lexington Health Network is a privately-owned and operated company passionate about offering health care and living options. We manage more than 1,700 skilled nursing beds in ten different post-acute, nursing, and long-term care buildings as well as more than 500 independent retirement units and more than 150 assisted-living units within three senior-living centers. Our diverse network of health care services also offers home health care, hospice care, and private care services.

Lexington proudly employs more than 2,500 full and part-time individuals enabling us to provide care, comfort and compassionate service to the communities we serve.

As an organization, we have always maintained a unique perspective driven by family values. Whether you are a post-acute patient, resident, a family member, or an employee, you are considered an extension of our family. In an industry filled with rapid change and growth, the Lexington mission—our commitment to compassionate care and service—will never change.

Service Excellence

Service Excellence is Lexington Health Network’s process of continuously demonstrating to our patients, residents, and families that they are valued and that their overall service experience is our highest priority. We work to lessen the fear and uncertainty that can accompany health care encounters by sharing information, collaborating with families, anticipating needs, and offering personalized experiences. We see patients and families as valued partners and essential members of our caregiving team.

I am looking forward to being able to walk without a walker, sing and perform karaoke, and do work around the house. The team at Lexington provided guidance and support through my challenges and provided me with the positive thinking I needed to recover. Do what you are told to do by the therapist and have a positive attitude.

My experience was very good. The Lexington staff helps you with everything you need. They're very friendly and polite. When you need help, they are right there to help you. And, they provided encouragement.

Helen, Rehabilitation Patient

Mary tells us that she feels her biggest accomplishment since coming to Lexington includes walking. "I was so weak being in the hospital for 5 weeks, I could hardly stand and now I'm walking 400 feet. I also could not eat food when I came here, and now I can. Everyone was nice and friendly, I was treated well. You have a good therapy and medical staff, I have been to other places and this was by far the best!

Mary, Rehabilitation Patient
Lexington Health Network

"Upon arrival at Lexington my physicality was immediately evaluated so that a program could be designed for me that would provide challenges and help me strengthen and improve on a daily and weekly basis.Jessica concentrated early on building up my upper body strength so that I could further support my legs when attempting to walk. I would be remiss if I did not also praise the support I received from the nursing and support staffs there. The therapy and training that I received from the individuals at Lexington was phenomenal and will help me move forward in recovering from the back injury.

Nathan, Rehabilitation Patient
Lexington Health Network

I feel wonderful. I think it's a result of the good care I'm getting here. They know how to inspire the patients. They know how to help patients strengthen themselves, to get well and get back home.I'm looking forward to moving around my house and seeing my cats.

The History of Lexington Health

1984

First Lexington Health Care Center opens in Lombard

We opened our first Lexington Healthcare community in 1984 and learned that each of our residents and patients had unique stories to tell, ones we could learn from. With each situation, we became more successful by listening carefully and responding individually, quickly seeing the value of personalized care.

1986

First Independent Living Community opens in Lombard

When we opened the first of our two independent-retirement communities, Lexington Squares, we created a responsive community where people feel enveloped in safety, comfort, convenience, and love.

Eastgate Manor opens in Algonquin specializing in supportive living

Eastgate Manor initially served an independent senior population, but our residents quickly taught us that they could benefit from receiving additional services. Obtaining our Assisted Living license in 2003, we responded to the developing needs of people who looked to us for guidance. In 2005, we received Supportive Living certification which enabled residents to use Medicaid.

2004

Lexington Hospice is established

We created a support system to provide comfort and dignity with a holistic perspective, treating the entire patient and supporting their family when an illness no longer responds to cure-oriented therapies. Lexington Hospice focuses on dignity, symptom control, and emotional and spiritual support for patients in our care. We also offer palliative care to assist with management of symptoms and family guidance.
