Oakview Heights, located here in Mt. Carmel, IL, is a long-term care facility which features a wide range of programs from continuous care to rehabilitation. Oakview Heights is owned and operated by General Baptist Health Care.
General Baptist Healthcare is a faith-based, non-profit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the physical and spiritual well-being of their residents. This organization was born in 1954 when a group of area ministers choose to acquire a former motel in Campbell, MO to serve area residents with a unique kind of skilled nursing facility.
That original facility grew continually throughout the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, continuing growth today. In 1981 the organization purchased a property in Mt. Carmel, IL that overtime developed in to what we know as Oakview Heights. This facility also evolved over time adding an Alzheimer’s unit, rehabilitation facility, and an assisted living sector.
Oakview Heights provides exceptional continuous care and a state of the art rehabilitation center for the highest level of care and services in Wabash County as well as Southern Illinois. Residents can also receive Outpatient Therapy Services, so they don’t have to travel back to regional facilities for follow up care. These services are also offered to non-residents, seeking local services.
In 2018, Oakview Heights was awarded a 5-Star Rating by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, for their high level of quality of care. The rating is based on three criteria, Health Inspections, Staffing, and Quality Measures, all which Oakview Heights excelled at.
Director of the facility, Matt Militoni commented “We are proud of the work we do. We are proud of the care we provide. Taking care of people within our community is not always the easiest but is the most rewarding.”
He added, “For me, this is a great recognition of the care we provide but does not show the amount of compassion and effort I continually witness from the staff, the physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and their care teams.”
Oakview Heights has many qualities to offer their residents. In addition to great care they also keep residents active with fun-filled daily activities, a beautiful sun-room for relaxation, monthly outings, and more. This local facility is a blessing to our community and the residents it cares for.
We encourage you when seeking quality care for your loved one to meet with the fine staff of Oakview Heights to discuss the best options for your family. This local home away from home, is truly an asset to our community.
