    Masonicare Expands Behavioral Health Services and Supports for Seniors 

    NIC Analytics Case Studies feature organizations, strategies, and products that are solving challenges in the senior living industry with creative solutions that are effective, repeatable, and scalable

    More than half of all senior housing residents have at least one mental or behavioral health diagnosis and approximately three out of four nursing care residents have a behavioral health diagnosis.* Meanwhile, there are a limited number of specialty behavioral health hospitals in the U.S. NIC Analytics case studies showcase senior housing operators and capital providers offering a solution to serve these needs. 

    This case study shows how the development of a dedicated behavioral health unit can prevent unnecessary senior care resident hospitalizations and readmissions by serving as an intermediary between the community and the chronic care hospital.  

    See how the integration of expanded behavioral health services into their continuum of care allows Masonicare to: 

    • Deliver quality, compassionate care to patients with both complex medical needs and behavioral health challenges
    • Differentiate themselves from competitors 

    Masonicare’s approach can: 

    • Deliver more seamless care services to residents 
    • Have positive impacts on payor distribution
    • Lead to improved contribution margins
