Executive Summary:
I am pleased to submit for your review a report as required by Section 32.1-353.4, Code of Virginia, as amended. This report outlines the initial steps and strategic plan now being taken under the auspices and direction of the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance. A non-profit organization is being established to provide statewide technical assistance to nursing homes in providing quality care and meeting certification requirements.

This program is referred to as Certified Nursing Facility Education Initiative and will be administered by a board of directors that has been constituted as required by Statute.

We look forward to providing assistance and consultation to nursing homes in accordance with the duties and responsibilities that have been assigned for the benefit of the citizens of the Commonwealth.
