Collaborating to Enrich Lives

The Virginia Health Care Association and the Virginia Center for Assisted Living (VHCA-VCAL) is a member-driven organization dedicated to advocating for and representing the interests of over 345 Virginia nursing and assisted living facilities, the over 90,000 residents and patients they serve annually through the selfless efforts of nearly 50,000 dedicated care-giving staff. We’re proud of our role as the Commonwealth’s largest association representing long term care. VHCA-VCAL’s strength, effectiveness, and integrity are significantly enhanced by the diversity of its membership which includes proprietary, non-profit, and government-operated facilities dedicated to providing the highest quality of care.

VHCA-VCAL conducts legislative and regulatory advocacy on behalf of its members on reimbursement and compliance issues and provides accredited continuing education for long term care administrators.
