About Us

RIHCA was founded in 1972.  Presently, we have 62 skilled nursing facilities who are members.  Every day, more than 7,500 Rhode Islanders rely on the 24-hour care given by our member homes.  We employ more than 10,000 people in the state.  Our skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities are committed to quality health care and consistently rank among the best in the country for resident care, quality and family satisfaction. 

RIHCA works with legislators, state agencies, local businesses, our members and consumers to enhance long term, rehabilitation and subacute care services at every level.  We provide year-round education to our members.  We continually advocate for our member homes and provide information, education and administrative tools to our member facilities, policymakers and consumers.

If you are in need of quality skilled nursing care or rehabilitation, look for a Rhode Island Health Care Association member nursing home.
