Partnership with the South Carolina Home Care & Hospice Association

The South Carolina Association for Home Care & Hospice has entered into a partnership agreement with NCHA to offer its members access to group purchasing from the same wide array of business partners available to NCHA’s 130+ member hospitals and health systems and affiliated post acute providers. This new relationship, brokered through NCHA Strategic Partners, offers enhanced purchasing power to SCHCHA members providing home health, hospice, palliative care, and personal care services.


“Healthcare is about caring for people and it is about the people and relationships involved this wonderful and honorable work.  We are so pleased to have a special relationship with AHHC and SCHCA, and to work together to improve care for the people and communities we serve and support.”

– Steve Lawler, President & CEO, NCHA

Supply cost management and performance improvement through Vizient, the industry’s largest supply contracting company and the nation’s largest member-owned health care services company, with more than 2,200 supplier and distributor agreements. Opportunities for cost savings include: medical supplies, dietary, and cell phone services.

Class action settlement expertise through MCAG, distributing hundreds of millions in cash settlements to clients through its Settlement Recovery Service. MCAG works with more than 1,000 health providers to streamline the filing process and secure recoveries from class action settlements.

Care coordination across the continuum with PatientPing, enabling better communication across patients’ care teams from the acute care to post-acute setting to improve care quality, lower costs, and enable safer, more seamless care transitions.

Temporary and temp-to-perm staffing through Qualivis, offering easy access to a nationwide network of healthcare staffing agencies, which means you spend less time managing contracts, fielding sales calls and playing phone tag and more time building a great team.

Full-service business insurance through Marsh & McLennan Agency, offering employee health and benefits program support as well as data-driven solutions to improve efficiency and cost effectiveness, and unique programs to protect and mitigate risk.


“Having known and worked with Steve Lawler closely for over a decade, AHHC and SCHCHA are proud to have been chosen as the care continuum partners of NCHA to expand these benefits to providers of hospice, palliative care, home health and home care services in the Carolinas. I am proud to be the first post-acute care member to sit on the NCHA Strategic Partners Board of Directors. In turn, the AHHC Board of Directors has appointed Jody Fleming, VP of NCHA Strategic Partners to serve as the second affiliate board member. This will continue to strengthen the partnership between NCHA and AHHC that will ultimately benefit members of both AHHC and SCHCHA.”

– Tim Rogers, President & CEO, AHHC of NC/SCHCHA
