About Us

Spoon River Home Health Services was established in February 1993, by four Registered Nurses wanting to make a difference for patients living in rural areas and small towns.  However, it did not take long for word to spread and our business grew from the small towns of London Mills, Ellisville, Fairview and Farmington, to include Peoria, Galesburg, Macomb and surrounding towns. Today Spoon River Home Health is licensed and providing care in thirteen counties in West Central Illinois. Spoon River Home Health Services is locally owned and operated, therefore making it possible to deliver professional home health services throughout the rural areas with the extra personal warmth everyone appreciates. Our main office is in Farmington, Illinois with work sites in both Peoria and East Peoria.

Our home health care services include nursing assessments, wound care, medication management, education, and IV therapy, as well as therapy services -Physical, Occupation and Speech therapies.

Our Non-Medical side offers 24 hour care, personal care, transportation, companionship, and many more services. Services are set up based on individuals needs. A home visit is made to discuss services, develop a personalized care plan and provide the best possible services to help keep you or a loved one safely in their own home.

We also provide emergency response systems for those who are not quite ready for home care but are looking for peace of mind.

Mission and Values

Spoon River Home Health Services is committed to providing the highest quality, individually-focused home health care to its clients in West Central Illinois.  As a locally owned and operated entity with a dedicated and professional staff, Spoon River Home Health Services pursues this mission by:

Company History

Spoon River Home Health Services was established in February 1993, by four Registered Nurses wanting to make a difference for their patients.  Spoon River Home Health Services is locally owned and operated, therefore making it possible to deliver professional home health services throughout the rural areas with the extra personal warmth everyone appreciates.

It is this immense sense of caring that has allowed Spoon River Home Health to overflow into much of the Central Illinois area.  Spoon River Home Health not only “Bridges the Gap” between hospital and home, but makes sure the bridge crosses over into cities, towns and all of the small country communities that are the backbone of the heartland.

Meet The Owners

owners

Spoon River Home Health is owned by Brian and Susan Platt and Frank Record. Unfortunately, Mary Lou passed away in November, 2015. Mary Lou was very proud to be a Registered Nurse for 65 years. She was a graduate of Cottage School of Nursing in Galesburg, Illinois, where she always looked forward to going back to her yearly reunions.

Frank is a current owner and continues to be very active in the business coming to the office daily to “crack the whip!”

Daily operations are ran by daughter Susan and her husband, Brian. Susan and her mother started the business, along with two other nurses in 1993.  At this time Brian was actively involved in the Agriculture industry and farming.

Five years into the business, Brian and Frank came into the business, along with Mary Lou and Susan, making it truly a family run business.

In 1993, Spoon River opened it’s door in the small community of London Mills, along the Spoon River. Thus the moto at the time, “Bridging the Gap in Healthcare” was our theme and the old London Mills Iron Bridge our logo.  It wasn’t long until the news of local nurses providing small town care spread, and quickly, our business was not just “small town” anymore.  Our clients quickly spread into the Peoria area and communities to the West.  It was for this reason, and the lack of updated phone lines, we relocated our main office to Farmington, Illinois.

Our main office remains in Farmington, with work sites in Peoria and East Peoria. SRHHS mainly serves the counties of Fulton, Knox, Peoria, McDonough and Tazewell counties, basically a sixty mile radius around Farmington.

A few years ago, it was time to update our logo. We choose the SRHH and using an arch to represent the bridge from our beginnings. We chose “Family Caring for Family” because that is truly what we are. Not only us, but countless family members have worked and still do, for Spoon River Home Health. Whether related by blood or proximity, we truly feel like a family and our patients become family to us.

Through the years, Spoon River Home Health has seen many changes in health care. SRHHS continues to grow and change to remain a vibrant part of the health care community and so that we can continue to provide the highest quality of care from our family to your family.

What Our Patients Say

default image

I didn't think I would need any help. I thought home health was only for people over a certain age, on Medicare. I was wrong. My incision was serious and more than I could handle on my own. Was I ever glad I had a nurse. And, my insurance paid 100% as well!
