Judge allows closure of mental hospital to proceed
CHICAGO – A judge on Thursday denied a motion that could have delayed Gov. Pat Quinn's planned closure of a mental hospital in Tinley Park.
Cook County Circuit Court Judge Nancy Jo Arnold agreed with state officials on key elements of the case. That means Illinois can close Tinley Park Mental Health Center on July 1 as planned.
The plaintiffs had argued that state law requires $19.8 million in savings from the facility closure to go toward other mental health services in the community.
