Peoria County announced Tuesday that Wade Cies has accepted the role of Heddington Oaks Administrator.
Cies’ new roll will go into effect Monday.
As administrator, Cies will be responsible for the daily operation of Peoria County’s long-term care facility. Cies will replace interim administrator Matt Nieukirk, who was brought in as part of OSF Healthcare’s team in fall 2018.
His most recent position was Campus Administrator of Heartland of Riverview in East Peoria.
“I am excited to welcome Wade Cies to Heddington Oaks,” states Scott Sorrel, Peoria County Administrator. “I believe his considerable experience in nursing home management, track record of instituting change, and previous work in partnering with OSF HealthCare fits in well with the goals we’ve set for Heddington Oaks.”
Cies has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Therapeutic Recreation from Illinois State University. He earned his Licensed Nursing Home Administrator (LNHA) designation in 2009.
Heddington Oaks is located on 13 acres in West Peoria.
