Zoning for Health Care and Assisted Living Facilities

The US population continues to grow, and the percentage of the U.S. population over the age of 65 will continue to increase. Both these factors translate into a greater need for health care services and assisted living facilities for the elderly. Health care construction is a growing industry. As the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) gradually takes effect, more than 30 million more Americans will be covered by health insurance. Many existing medical facilities also need to be remodeled to new zoning codes.
