New name. New logo. Same quality service.

Effective December 18, 2019, Eunice Smith Home, the skilled nursing and rehabilitation community that has been serving the senior communities of Alton, Godfrey and the Riverbend area for 53 years, officially will be known as Alton Memorial Rehabilitation & Therapy.

“We are committed to keeping the Eunice Smith legacy and commitment to excellence this community has provided, but we couldn’t ignore the numerous advantages of aligning with Alton Memorial Hospital and its reputation for quality, conscientious care for seniors living in the Riverbend area and their families,” says Daniel Vogel, Administrator of Alton Memorial Rehabilitation & Therapy.

Currently rated as a 5-star community by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in the area of Quality Measures, the rehabilitation, skilled nursing and long-term care services at Alton Memorial Rehabilitation & Therapy are provided by the experienced professionals from Bethesda Health Group, which manages the community per an agreement with community owner BJC HealthCare.

In the coming months, Alton Memorial Rehabilitation & Therapy will hold an Open House, and at the time will unveil areas of the community that reflect the essence of “Miss Eunice,” including a Healing Garden.
