WNY Long Term Care Network IPA

Why Choose Us

What is an IPA - An Independent Provider Association (IPA) is a collaborative entity of health care providers whose combined assets allow them to provide comprehensive, high quality care with greater accessibility and better results than if they were to do it individually.

WNY IPA's Foundation - Changes in the health care environment, both locally and state-wide, prompted our member facilities to strategically partner to share best practices and create efficiencies that are desirable and beneficial to providers, residents, patients and third party payors.

We believe that advancing the quality of the health care delivery system has a direct impact on the health and well-being of the individuals in our care, as well as our region as a whole. Each of our individual members brings value to the table allowing us to collectively focus on quality improvement initiatives at all levels of the health care spectrum. This creates a foundation of consistent, comprehensive care not found anywhere else in our region.
