FRANKLIN, Tenn. – July 3, 2024American Health Communities (AHC), a leading provider of skilled nursing and rehabilitation services, is renaming of two of its skilled nursing facilities as part of an ongoing initiative to enhance its brand identity and foster better connectivity to the communities they serve.

The following changes have been implemented:
