Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner has wrapped up his week long stay at the troubled Quincy Veterans Home. He says the state will install new plumbing at the facility, which has been plagued by deadly bouts with Legionnaires’ Disease. However, he isn’t interested in closing the doors.
Rauner says he didn’t cut corners in his visit.
Legionnaires’ has contributed to the deaths of 13 residents at the home since 2015. In addition to installing new water pipes, Rauner says he’ll look into construction of a new dorm facility.
