Recent increases in the types of services offered by nursing facilities and in the formation of specialized care units have resulted in the emergence of two distinct but broadly defined types of services: subacute and long-term care. The authors examine the market, regulatory, and structural incentives behind diversification and specialization and speculate how these trends will affect the future of the nursing home industry.
