National Healthcare Corporation (NHC) Nursing Homes

National_Healhtcare_Corporation_NHCNational Healthcare Corporation (NHC) has been operating nursing homes since 1971. They have over 100 facilities ranging from home care programs to their long-term care facilities. Their corporate office is out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee.


NHC has a total of over 130 facilities, 75 of which are long-term facilities in 11 different states. Tennessee has the majority of their nursing homes with 30 locations. They also have nursing homes in Alabama, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Virginia.

Medicare Inspections

NHC is smaller than many of the nursing home chains, even with its 75 locations. Typically as chains get larger, you see their ratings within the Medicare system dwindle. NHC, being one of the smaller national chains has much better rankings then many of the large chains with some locations getting 3-star or above overall ratings. However, out of the 24 Tennessee Medicare program facilities, over half, 14, of NHC homes received a rating of 3 or below.


The majority of NHC facilities are dedicated to long-term care. They do also have other services in a smaller capacity:

  • Home care programs
  • Assisted Living
  • Independent Living


One of the most notorious series of lawsuits surrounding NHC was in it’s own home state of Tennessee. It was alleged that the company allowed a serial sexual molester and abuser to stay in its employment at its Bristol nursing home for seven long years even though fellow employees, administration and residents had made countless complaints. Complaints started in 2000 and continued through 2007 when the employee finally resigned of his own accord.

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
