Are most nursing homes for-profit?

Share this content:
Yes. About 65% of nursing homes are owned by for-profit by for-profit entities, while 28% are owned by non-profit organizations. The remainder is owned by government agencies, usually at the city or county level. About half of all freestanding SNFs — or two-thirds of all for-profit SNFs — are owned or operated by chains. Many of the largest chains also have significant non-nursing facility lines of business, including home health services, long-term acute care hospitals and assisted living facilities.
