Works Hard for Illinois Nursing Home Communities
Care Council of Illinois (HCCI) is the strong, leading voice for nursing
home communities across the state. HCCI strives to bridge the divide between
state policy makers and nursing home communities through education and
HCCI works diligently to support legislation that will benefit nursing
home communities, as well as defeat or correct any legislation that could
have a negative impact on those we serve. As an important government affairs
component, HCCI actively participates in the development, response and
interpretation of both federal and state regulations.
HCCI spearheads an integrated, results-oriented communication program,
including newsletters, member alerts and media outreach. The program works
to educate members about the ever-changing regulatory landscape, as well
as showcase positive stories about Illinois nursing home communities in
media outlets across the state.
The Health Care Council of Illinois Political Action Committee (HCCI-PAC)
orchestrates our statewide political activities. HCCI-PAC’s political
plan includes district visits with legislators, grassroots efforts by
nursing home communities, fundraising and campaign activities. Our PAC
plays a very active role in election seasons by supporting elected officials
who champion nursing home communities, including members of all four legislative
caucuses and state executive officers.
