“Skilled nursing occupancy held steady in May, as operators still confront a challenging operating landscape amidst high inflation and staffing challenges.” - Bill Kauffman NIC MAP Vision released its latest Skilled Nursing Monthly Report on August 4, 2022. The report includes key monthly data points from January 2012 through May 2022.
NIC MAP Vision clients, with access to NIC MAP® data, attended a webinar in mid-July on key seniors housing data trends during the second quarter of 2022. Findings were presented by the NIC Analytics research team. Here are key takeaways from the data release.
