BENSENVILLE -- Lifelink finalized a transaction
on Dec. 15, 2006, to transition ownership of The Anchorage of
Bensenville, a rehabilitation and wellness center, and Bridgeway of
Bensenville and Meadow Crest residential living facilities on its
Bensenville Campus to Lincoln-based Christian Homes.
Christian Homes now
operates each of the facilities. All Lifelink employees at the three
facilities became employees of Christian Homes. Bridgeway of
Bensenville is now owned by Christian Homes. Anchorage of
Bensenville and Meadow Crest ownership will transfer to Christian
Homes by June 2007. Terms of the transaction will not be disclosed.
"In Christian Homes, we have found an organization with a commitment
to caring for seniors," said Christine Tani, chairwoman of the
Lifelink board of directors.
"Like us, they are an Illinois faith-based organization. They are
very well-managed and have a strong track record for dedicating
capital dollars to facility improvements. Christian Homes is
recognized as a national leader in nursing home care and bring[s]
relevant experience to the residents of these three facilities."
