Bethesda Health Group and BJC HealthCare, two highly respected names in acute care and senior living, collaborated in 2014 to allow Bethesda to begin managing Eunice Smith Home, a 62-bed skilled nursing community (commonly known as ‘nursing home’), as a result of a management agreement with Alton Memorial Hospital, effective January 1, 2015.

Eunice Smith Home has been serving the Alton community since 1966. Eunice Smith Home offers occupational, speech and physical therapy, dietitians, resident activities and the Memory Lane Secure Dementia Unit. The facility in 2015 was the first nursing home in the state to earn an “E for Excellence” award from the American Health Care Association.
