New Analysis: Nursing Facilities Create 1.12 Million Jobs

In releasing a new Avalere Health LLC analysis today detailing the economic and jobs output of nursing facilities in the nation’s 50 most populous Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs), the Alliance for Quality Nursing Home Care said the growing entitlement reform discussion warrants a detailed look at the fact America’s skilled nursing facility sector is a key pillar to the U.S. employment and economic base, and that Medicare funding is central to both local jobs strength and high quality patient care.
