Quality Care is Priceless


What we offer

Southgate Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is conveniently located in Metropolis, Illinois, just 10 minutes from Paducah, KY. We have been providing nursing home and rehabilitation care in the Southern Illinois and Paducah Area since 1970. Whether your loved one needs long term care or short term rehabilitation care, Southgate Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is here to assist you. 

At Southgate we understand how difficult it is to choose the right nursing home. Many of our employees have experienced this decision with their elderly parents and relatives. You can be assured that we do everything we can to alleviate the stress and doubt that you feel when you decide to move your elderly loved one from the home. When you choose Southgate you are just moving them to a new home and you are doing what is best for them! Our residents believe Southgate is a wonderful place to call home!
