Our History

The History of Quincy Healthcare and Senior Living (Lincoln Hill, & Christian Shelticenter)

The 1800’s & The 1900’s

The original Quincy Healthcare and Senior Living dates back to 1884 when a Catholic order of nuns called the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ created and ran the facility. Quincy Healthcare and Senior Living was operated under their direct care until 1968.

The building and grounds that we know as the Quincy Healthcare and Senior Living of today was constructed in 1968 adjacent to the old Quincy Healthcare and Senior Living of 1884 at 10th & Sycamore in Quincy, Illinois.

Many might ask, “Why was a new facility built in 1968?” The answer is because, in 1968 new guidelines regarding nursing home building construction were implemented. Subsequently, the original Quincy Healthcare and Senior Living had to be shut down since it wouldn’t have been cost effective to remodel the building according to the new code. That original Quincy Healthcare and Senior Living building might be known to many as The Christian Shelticenter.

From 1968 until 1990 various owners ran what was then called Lincoln Hill Nursing Home. In 1990, the owners went bankrupt and Wayne Messick, M.P.H. purchased the home and changed the name back to Quincy Healthcare and Senior Living.

Wayne dedicated his life to the healthcare industry serving as director of the Adams County Illinois Health Department from 1950 until 1969. In 1969 he purchased Carlyle Healthcare Center in Carlyle, Illinois which was also operated under the Poor Handmaids Of Jesus Christ. Wayne owned and managed Quincy Healthcare and Senior Living Home from 1990 and Carlyle Healthcare Center from 1969 until his death in 1999, it was his life’s passion to serve in the healthcare industry. In the years Wayne managed Quincy Healthcare and Senior Living, he completely renovated the facility, added a new wing to the nursing home, laid the groundwork for Casita Catherine Assisted Living, demolished the old and condemned Quincy Healthcare and Senior Living Building (The Christian Shelticenter), and added Catherine Kasper Independent Living duplexes in its place.

Wayne instilled a tradition of excellence and a return to a faith based facility under his leadership. He passed that torch and vision on to his wife and daughters’ families. They continue to own and manage Quincy Healthcare and Senior Living Home today.
