Connecting You to Illinois’ Long Term Care Community
Welcome to the HCCI website! The Health Care Council of Illinois (HCCI) serves as the joint legislative, regulatory, communication, and political arm of both the Illinois Health Care Association and the Illinois Council on Long Term Care. HCCI speaks with a strong and unified voice in representing the Illinois nursing home profession.
Through its legislative outreach, the staff of HCCI works diligently to support legislation that will benefit Illinois’ 100,000 nursing home residents, and to defeat or correct any legislation that would 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 agency regulations.
HCCI spearheads an integrated and results-achieving communication program that includes newsletters, magazines, member alerts, and media outreach. This program places more than 300 positive stories annually about Illinois’ long term care community in media outlets across the state.
The Health Care Council of Illinois Political Action Committee (HCCI-PAC) orchestrates political contributions and activities. HCCI-PAC’s political plan includes personal visits with legislators, grassroots efforts by members, fundraising, and campaign activity across all four legislative caucuses. HCCI plays a very active role during election seasons in supporting the Champions of our profession.
