Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner says 53 million dollars from the state will fund a new water system at the Illinois Veterans Home.
Renovation will soon begin on the former Sycamore Healthcare facility to house veterans during construction on new facilities at the Illinois Veterans Home. Rauner says veterans will have the option to move to Sycamore or stay at the Illinois Veterans Home during the construction. Sale of the nursing home facility two blocks south of the Veterans Home is to close on Friday with renovations beginning immediately.
