Who are we?

Empira is a quality improvement organization, committed to improving the aging experience by bringing out the best in aging services. We challenge the status quo and apply practical application of evidence-based research to create new approaches and standards of excellence. 

Empira collaborates with our members’ nursing home communities (Cassia - an Augustana/Elim Affiliation, Presbyterian Homes & Services, Saint Therese and Volunteers of America) in metro and rural Minnesota to develop our signature quality improvement programs. Once developed, these programs are shared with senior care provider communities and health care organizations throughout the nation.
