Marklund is a philosophy of care

Marklund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves infants, children, teens and adults with serious and profound developmental disabilities and special healthcare needs.

With three residential locations–the Marklund Hyde Center in Geneva, the Marklund Philip Center in Bloomingdale, and the Marklund Wasmond Center in Elgin–it is home to 178 residents. The Hyde Center is specifically licensed as an Intermediate Care Facility (ICF). The Philip and Wasmond Centers are licensed as Medically Complex/Skilled Nursing facilities for adults and children with developmental disabilities (MC/DD). Each facility has onsite Community Day Services for adults which provides individualized programming that includes topical curriculum and focuses on daily living and vocational skills to improve each individual’s level of independence. More than 500 staff members and hundreds of volunteers support the needs of the residents and community clients at all of our sites.

Marklund Day School, located in Bloomingdale, Geneva and Elgin, is a State Board of Education Licensed Therapeutic Day program that partners with area school districts to serve children with multiple medical needs, learning, emotional and developmental disabilities, and those diagnosed on the autism spectrum.

At Marklund, many of our residents and community clients are non-ambulatory and have severe cognitive disabilities due to genetic disorders, complications during pregnancy and delivery, or other issues. Others acquired disabilities during infancy or childhood through tragic accidents. Many have complex medical problems that require 24-hour skilled nursing care and regular therapy interventions.

At Marklund, our residents and community clients have safe, happy, purpose-filled lives.


Our MISSION: Make everyday life possible for individuals with profound disabilities.
