Business history/future: Living Centers Inc. d/b/a Imboden Creek Health Services began in Sullivan in 1983 with the mission of developing new and innovative ways to care for those in need of long term care; to change the perceptions of society about what care for the elderly should mean. That mission came to Decatur in 1990 with the opening of Imboden Creek Living Center and remains the foundation of this company.
