Established in 1954, the Kentucky Association of Health Care Facilities (KAHCF) is the trade association that represents propriety and nonproprietary nursing facilities and personal care homes across the Commonwealth. One of the state affiliates of the American Health Care Association, KAHCF provides a wide variety of services to member facilities including legislative and regulatory activities, professional development, statewide recognition programs, publications, media relations, research and advocacy relations.
In order to meet the growing needs of the membership, Statewide Insurance Services (SIS) was incorporated in 1992 as a subsidiary of KAHCF. SIS provides association members with an array of insurance services as well as providing financial support to KAHCF.
In 1998, the Kentucky Health Care Foundation, Inc. (KHCF) was established to address the growing workplace and educational needs of long term care professionals. The purpose and mission of KHCF is to enhance quality care in the long-term care continuum through research, education, innovation and partnerships, as supported by charitable contributions.
