PHCA COVID-19 Report

In late June, Governor Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania General Assembly directed nearly $300 million in critical emergency funding to nursing homes, assisted living communities and personal care homes through the federal CARES Act to aid in the COVID-19 response. While this one-time funding has helped our members take steps to address increased costs and keep pace with skyrocketing expenses, the ongoing response has created significant short-term and long-term challenges for providers.

The Pennsylvania Health Care Association (PHCA) released its Long-Term Care Plan for Pennsylvania in April, which outlines the critical needs of long-term care providers in the continued response to COVID-19, many of which remain important issues today.

Following an August survey of PHCA skilled nursing, assisted living and personal care providers, a new report highlights the fiscal threat to a fragile industry brought on by a relentless and ongoing COVID-19 response.

Results of the survey are listed below:

This survey includes responses from 70 PHCA member providers and reflects experiences of individual and multi-facility nursing homes, personal care homes and assisted living communities from all regions of Pennsylvania.
