ABOUT MHCA:  The Montana Health Care Association is a non-profit, member-driven professional association serving Montana's long term care facilities. Founded in 1962 and originally representing only nursing homes, MHCA has opened its membership to all organizations involved in long term care. We represent profit and non-profit, independent and corporate-owned, religious, fraternal and government-operated facilities, as well as hospital-based facilities. Our members provide skilled nursing, assisted living, critical access hospital swing beds, personal care, home health, respite and therapy services.

Thank You to these Generous Sponsors of the 2023 MHCA Spring Virtual Conference
