Long-Term Care Trade Association NASL Changes Name to Advion

The National Association for the Support of Long Term Care (NASL) kicked off its 33rd annual meeting in Nashville this week by announcing it would be operating under a new name: Advion.

Complete with the tagline: “the next generation of NASL,” the new name recognizes the trade association’s position as both an advocate for patients, clients and staff and a champion for pertinent issues, according to the organization’s leadership.

The group was founded in 1989 by advocates of professional medical services to long-term care facilities, and now represents roughly 100 companies that provide physical, occupational and speech-language pathology therapies, among other services for long term and post-acute care settings nationally, according to its website.


“The name Advion represents a fusion of our core strengths – as advocates for our members and those they serve and as champions for the work of our members in an increasingly diverse long term and post-acute care sector and services for senior living,” Board President Mike Capstick said in a statement.

Rebranding efforts were underway more than a year ago comprising focus groups and discussions with members, the board and other key stakeholders.

“We have no intention of giving up our hard-earned reputation on Capitol Hill and across many Administrations,” Chief Lobbyist and Executive Vice President Cynthia Morton said in a statement.


Advion will debut a new website later this year that will feature the new name and logo.
