Los Angeles Jan. 26, 2024 – County Supervisor Kathryn Barger will host a special public meeting focused on the oversight, care, and management of skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) in Los Angeles County.

“Undoubtedly, our County – along with the entire nation – is seeing a dramatic increase in our senior population,” said Supervisor Kathryn Barger. “Living longer and the health realities that accompany aging means there will be a greater need for assisted care and skilled nursing facilities. This forum is an important opportunity for the County to hear how we can be more responsive to the needs of all residents.”

The convening will feature special presentations by several relevant County departments (Health Services and Mental Health) on the transfer and care of patients, and Public Health, Auditor-Controller and Office of Inspector General on SNF oversight.

The hearing will be held on Monday, January 29 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the Board Hearing Room at the Hahn Hall of Administration, located at 500 West Temple Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.
