Nursing Home Reports

Data found in the reports listed below were obtained from the annual Long Term Care Facility surveys. Click "Show +" to expand a section, and "Hide -" to collapse it. To open a specific report or file, select the desired year and click the "Submit" button.

A Nursing Home Geographic Information Systems (GIS) layer is created each year and available for download as a shapefile, or which can be added to a map as a map service (ArcMap, Google Earth, WMS) from the Pennsylvania Spatial Data Access (PASDA) website.

Attention data users: Due to a shift in survey administration and reporting, our Nursing Home data and reports changed from calendar year to fiscal year periods. The 2014 Nursing Home Reports were the last based on calendar year. The first fiscal year reports are for 2015-2016.

Starting with 2016-2017, reports are in Excel format. Users that do not have Excel available may download Microsoft's free Excel Viewer.
