Health Care Hiring Launches Nursing Home Directory Searchable by Medicare Number

Health Care Hiring recently announced the launch of a new search-by-medicare-number feature for nursing homes, life care centers and skilled nursing facilities at

September 27, 2009 (FPRC) -- Seattle, WA - As part of their site-wide restructuring and redeployment, Health Care Hiring now provides a searchable database of over 15,000 nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, life care centers and care homes. Homes may be searched by medicare number, name, state and city, and information provided includes type of ownership, number of beds, hospital affiliation and complete contact information, as well as road maps to each facility listed.

Individuals seeking care facilities for themselves or for their loved ones and family members may locate and contact nursing facilities. Medical billers and medical transcriptionists, who form a regular user base of Health Care Hiring, may seek providers searching by Medicare number, in addition to the other Medicare searches provided for hospitals, dialysis clinics, and home health agencies, plus a current physician NPI search and a legacy physician UPIN search. Frequently these busy health care professionals need to locate providers by medicare number, and the new Health Care Hiring Medicare searchs are the fastest and most complete available. Lucas Prose, Intake Leader for Girling Healthcare, says it is "a valuable tool in insuring fast and accurate care." Ladonna Bruce, Medical Transcriptionist for WebMedx, says "I use this site as my primary source for locating physicians as I work for hospitals in 3 states."

Jobseekers also may search nursing homes in their geographic area to find employment as nurses, nursing aides, CNA's, orderlies and care aides. Some nursing homes also include hospice care combined with a nursing and convalescent home, and some care facilities also provide in-home medical care as a home health agency. The field of elder care and home health care is one of the fastest growing employment areas nationwide, as the "baby boomer" generation ages. Employment opportunities are good for entry-level positions, and on-the-job training is often provided.

Nursing homes and skilled nursing facilities care for people who require a level of care that cannot be provided at home, but whose health problems are not acute enough to require hospitalization. Some nursing homes specialize in dementia and Alzheimer's patients, some facilities are hospital-like with visiting doctors, and some are more household-like and patients go out to visit doctors offices.
