As many visitors to www.seniorcare.nic.org already know, NIC has been curating links to news articles relevant to the new partnerships, innovations, and business deals that are reshaping America’s seniors housing and healthcare landscape. We’ve posted over 150 articles so far this year, from a wide variety of outlets, including the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, NPR, Forbes, The Boston Globe, every seniors housing and care sector journal, several medical journals, and a growing number of healthcare industry outlets, such as Modern Healthcare, Fierce Healthcare, and Home Health Care News, among others.
