The District of Columbia Health Care Association represents 100% of all of the licensed non-federal nursing facilities and many of the Assisted Living facilities in the District of Columbia. DCHCA’s strength, effectiveness and integrity are significantly enhanced by the diversity of its membership, which includes proprietary, non-profit and government-operated facilities.

The District of Columbia Health Care Association is an information and education resource to its facility members, associate business members, vendors and consultants. DCHCA provides its members with continuing education programs, as well as keeping members informed in many areas, including the development of policy and legislation, regulatory compliance, and payment and reimbursement. DCHCA also works on behalf of the general public, educating legislators, government officials, the media and consumers on the serious issues facing our profession.
