LeadingAge New York Services Inc. was established on March 3, 1993, as a wholly-owned for-profit subsidiary of LeadingAge New York (LeadingAgeNY). LeadingAge New York Services explores programs that integrate the need and delivery of appropriate member services to LeadingAge New York members by arrangements with selected providers to furnish comprehensive subject outlines, explicit standards for selection, formal programs for ongoing quality assurance and a significant financial incentive for LeadingAge New York members to use endorsed providers associated with LeadingAge New York Services.
By way of an extensive evaluation process, LeadingAge New York Services pursues its goal of helping to control the skyrocketing costs member facilities experience without sacrificing the quality of goods and products member facilities receive.
