Lexington Stories of Inspiration and Dedication

At Lexington Health Network,
our goal is to nurture the human spirit and inspire well-being, one person and one family at a time.

Overcoming COVID-19

Congratulations to Nancy and her therapy and clinical teams at Lexington Skilled Nursing and Physical Rehabilitation Center of Lake Zurich. Our health care heroes helped Nancy regain strength, mobility and independence after her recovery from COVID-19.
Overcoming COVID-19

“I am a survivor of COVID-19. I arrived at Lexington after a life-battling 45 days in the hospital. I was told that the gym was closed due to COVID and I had my doubts about all therapy being done in my room. I was very impressed that Lexington’s Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Physical Therapists were able to start my recovery very quickly. I was able to stand for 5 minutes in the first couple of days. The Speech Therapist helped me after I was on a ventilator for 21 days. My voice is slowly coming back. I came far quickly. I’m going home very confident knowing I can take care of myself and my parents.

Thank you, Lexington therapists, for all you did for me.”

We are very proud of Nancy, her rehabilitation team and the entire staff at Lexington of Lake Zurich who helped Nancy through her challenging health event. Included in our new methods for helping patients are conference care and caregiver training through video chat so families can participate in their loved one’s rehab care.

A Nurse’s Calling

A Nurse’s Calling

“I chose nursing because…it is such a gratifying experience to know that I have made a difference in another person’s life.” – Rumbi, RN

Lexington Healthcare Hero Spotlight: Rumbi, Registered Nurse at Lexington Skilled Nursing and Physical Rehabilitation Center of Schaumburg for over a decade.

“Lexington feels like home, like one big family working together. Lexington believed in me early in my career and chose to make me Wound Care Certified. Additionally, through the Tuition Reimbursement Program, I was able to complete my Registered Nurse licensure. I am so grateful.”

Thank you, Rumbi, and all of our Lexington Healthcare Heroes, for your dedication and commitment. We appreciate all that you do to provide care and comfort to our patients and residents!

Memory Care Commitment

Our Lexington Health Network healthcare heroes continue to inspire us daily. Natoria, Memory Care Manager at Lexington Skilled Nursing and Physical Rehabilitation of Bloomingdale, exemplifies commitment and compassion and has been with Lexington for nearly 12 years.
Memory Care Commitment

“I chose this career because I have a passion for working with the elderly who have cognitive issues. It makes me proud and happy to see their smiling faces, knowing they’re engaged. I love care plan meetings with the families, educating them about dementia, and focusing on the whole person and their quality of life rather than just the illness.

I love the teamwork and longevity of the staff here at Lexington. I consider them to be family. Lexington has supported my career growth and education through the Tuition Reimbursement Program. Additionally, I completed Lexington’s Certified Leadership Program and am able to implement those principles in my work.” – Natoria

Thank you, Natoria, and all of our Lexington Health Network team members for your dedication to our patients, residents - and their family members.

Honoring One of Our Veterans at Lexington Square

Honoring One of Our Veterans at Lexington Square

“Last week, I saw Marion wearing his Honor Flight Chicago shirt with great pride. I noticed it was well-worn and reached out to Doug at HFC and asked him if we could replace a shirt that was issued on  5/12/2009. This morning, I called Marion and asked him to come to our Lombard Square Dining Room with his HFC shirt. To his surprise, we presented him with some new duds! He was so happy and thought of the 900 sailors that were on his ship during WW2.  He was brought to tears as he mentioned those that he served with. We made someone very happy today. Thanks to Doug and the Honor Flight Chicago team for continuing to honor a man who served our great country.” 

– Dan Harrington, VP of Senior Living

Thank you to all who serve our country!
