NHC is proudly celebrating its 50th anniversary. Since 1971, NHC has developed a comprehensive continuum of care to continue to meet the healthcare needs of seniors in communities across ten states.
Dr. Carl Adams founded NHC in 1971 with a vision to create high quality healthcare specifically for seniors starting with 14 skilled nursing centers. Dr. Adams dreamed to create a campus concept that offered in-house services for seniors as they age with different needs much like the continuing care retirement communities today. Now with nearly 14,000 NHC partners (employees) across ten states, NHC provides care to thousands of seniors each day.
“Our key to success over the past 50 years is bringing talents from all different disciplines together to deliver the best quality care for our patients, residents, and their families,” said Steve Flatt, chief executive officer of NHC. “As a leader in senior care, NHC has developed the most comprehensive continuum of care. We provide skilled nursing, rehabilitation, long-term care, home care, assisted living, memory care, hospice, and inpatient geriatric psychiatric services. We are grateful for the opportunity to provide care in a better way for the past 50 years.”

We are pleased to announce that on June 11, 2021, NHC acquired the remaining interest in Caris Healthcare. Caris provides hospice and palliative care to over 1,200 patients per day in 28 locations in Georgia, Missouri, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. Prior to the purchase, NHC owned a majority stake in Caris, but it will now be a wholly owned and consolidated subsidiary of NHC.
Caris specializes in providing hospice and palliative care to over 1,200 patients per day in 28 locations in Georgia, Missouri, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. As a leading senior care provider, this acquisition is a strategic advancement of NHC’s growth of a continuum of care to seniors in our operational footprint.
“Caris has been a premier hospice and palliative care provider for many years. We are honored to continue to provide these critical, compassionate services for patients and their families during such a challenging time in their lives,” said Steve Flatt, CEO.
