American Health Associates opened in 1990 as a lab service provider to physician practices; soon after, we focused on developing a premier skilled nursing facility platform. Today, American Health Associates is the largest lab provider for long term care in the nation.

As the population ages there will be increased pressure on the network of skilled nursing facilities throughout the United States, it will be imperative for the nursing facilities to rely on experienced service providers. AHA has partnered with the nation’s leading long term care corporations to develop a range of services tailored to their needs.

American Health is a family-owned and operated company, our governance and management is driven by the family’s passion for clinical excellence and the care of the patients we serve.
