September 21, 2020 – Today marks the launch of Nursing Home Advocates of New Jersey (NHANJ), a newly formed statewide coalition dedicated to promoting responsible policies for nursing home residents, staff and families.
NHANJ was formed by prominent private nursing home providers, who have over 150 years of operating experience in New Jersey and represent approximately 25% of New Jersey’s skilled nursing homes.
“The response to the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the need for constructive dialogue and ongoing collaboration among lawmakers, state officials, and knowledgeable industry leaders to enact responsible policies that will actually make a positive difference in the lives of residents, staff and families,” said NHANJ director Andrew P. Aronson, Esq., a New Jersey attorney who has practiced in the area of Health Care Law for over 20 years. “We are determined to provide expert knowledge and feedback on statewide policies and proposed long term care legislation, as it pertains to nursing homes,” he said.
“Our work will complement the broader efforts of the existing statewide associations that represent a large and diverse group of healthcare providers, but whose members are not exclusively nursing home owners,” Aronson said.
NHANJ members will continue to provide the highest quality care to the state’s long-term and short-term residents in the midst of COVID-19, while advocating for the welfare of the predominantly frail elderly population through education, outreach, and mutual collaboration.
