State public health officials confirmed Wednesday they are in the process of revoking the license for a troubled Joliet nursing home.

Hillcrest Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, 777 Draper Ave., also was scheduled to be decertified for Medicare on April 1, said Melaney Arnold, communications manager for the Illinois Department of Public Health.

Arnold could not confirm Wednesday that the center was scheduled to close May 15. A woman who answered the phone at Hillcrest on Wednesday said Amy Sparks, who is listed as the administrator of the facility on both the IDPH website and the facility’s website, no longer was working there. No administrators were available to comment, the woman said.
