A Look at the Skilled Nursing Market in 2017


Lancaster Pollard’s recent March Spring Bonus Issue provides a forecast for what 2017 will mean for the skilled nursing facility market. Lancaster Pollard produced its third annual Seniors Housing and Care Survey, polling about 250 leaders at senior housing and care facilities around the country.

Respondents predicted that the skilled nursing sector will experience the least amount of growth in 2017 (compared to other elements of the continuum of care—a concept involving a system that guides and tracks aging patients over time through a comprehensive array of health services spanning all levels and intensity of care).

In addition to this, a total of 72% of survey respondents in the skilled nursing industry reported that they expect to pursue a renovation project in the coming year. The expected renovations and new constructions are in conjunction with innovative technologies and data analysis tools that could revolutionize the skilled nursing care industry.

The article concludes with these words: “The skilled nursing industry is changing, that much is clear. However, the bedrock remains the same—providing the highest quality of care possible.”

Capital Health Management is dedicated to continuing to provide just that. Our facilities offer the highest quality of care possible for our patients and their families.
