About the Oregon Health Care Association

Founded in 1950, the Oregon Health Care Association (OHCA) improves the lives of seniors and people with disabilities by promoting quality long term care in Oregon. A nonprofit, OHCA is the largest long term care trade association in Oregon, representing more than 1,000 organizations and 90 percent of long term care providers in the state.

The Oregon Health Care Association has worked to improve quality care in Oregon for more than 65 years by providing advocacy and education for and on behalf of its members. OHCA works with local, state, and federal policymakers, government officials, advocates, and coalitions to promote policies that ensure the independence, choice, and dignity of those living in long term care settings. OHCA offers a variety of unique, high-quality educational opportunities every year, featuring live webinars, nationally recognized experts, and conferences that bring together thousands of dedicated long term care providers and caregivers.

Members of the Oregon Health Care Association include assisted living and residential care communities, multi-facility operators, post-acute care settings, senior housing, licensed in-home care agencies, and business partners who provide goods and services to long term care communities.

The Oregon Health Care Association is a member of the American Health Care Association (AHCA), National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL), and Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA).
