Florida's Advocate for Long Term Care Providers and the Elders They Serve


Veterans Resources

Florida Health Care Association is proud to represent over 550 skilled nursing centers and assisted living facilities that employ veterans or care for resident veterans . FHCA's Veterans Resources web page includes veteran-related links, employment resources, news and advocacy updates to support member centers/facilities as they work to meet veterans' needs. In addition, we’re always on the lookout for photos and stories from centers that serve veterans to feature on the website, so please contact us with information so the site can continue to grow. Veterans are a tremendous part of our history; FHCA is proud to honor them and continue enhancing the way the Association serves their needs.
