Alabama’s skilled nursing care centers have a stronger voice thanks to two centers joining the state largest long-term and post acute care organization.

St. Martin’s in the Pines in Birmingham and Fairview at Redstone Village in Huntsville recently became members of the Alabama Nursing Home Association.

“We can accomplish more for our residents, patients and employees when we work together,” ANHA President & CEO Bill O’Connor said. “I appreciate the investment St. Martin’s in the Pines and Fairview at Redstone Village made in our organization and the confidence they place in us to deliver results. We look forward to their active participation.”

With the two additions, ANHA now represents 95% of Alabama’s skilled nursing care centers.
