The voice for long-term care in Tennessee

The Tennessee Health Care Association’s mission is to enhance the ability of its members to provide essential long-term care services for the elderly and disabled through education, advocacy and leadership. With integrity and innovation, THCA develops programs and services that maintain and advance the quality of care its members provide while improving public understanding of our role in the health care delivery system.

Founded in 1947, the Tennessee Health Care Association is dedicated to helping maintain the high standards of licensed long-term care facilities in the Volunteer State. THCA members include roughly 250 facilities with a combined total of approximately 28,000 patients. Members include nursing homes of all types – privately-owned, government operated and nonprofit – as well as some assisted care living facilities.
