Welcome to the
2016 OHCA / OCAL / OCID Convention

Imagine thousands of attendees, an enormous exhibit hall, motivating keynote speakers, hundreds of educational sessions and a great destination. OHCA, OCAL and OCID's convention is all of that, conveniently located close to home, without the expense of air fare.

Our Annual Convention and Exposition reaches an audience of more than 3,000 individuals active in the health care profession. Our audience ranges from owners and influential corporate leaders to administrators, directors of nursing, department heads and managers, to front line staff including attendees from all professions within the assisted living community, ICF-IID providers and skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities.

You won’t want to miss the motivating keynote program, the excitement of the presentations of EFOHCA scholarships and, our annual awards luncheon, or the splendor of OHCA’s banquet gala and party.  We’ve also scheduled our popular Golf Outing on Monday and Hospitality Hop on Tuesday evening.   

The Exhibit Hall will feature more than 300 booths with information, state of the art products and services geared towards healthcare professionals.  It’s the perfect place to help you find the tools that are right for your organization. Exhibit booth applications will be available by the beginning of December 2015. For more information contact Cindy Lee at

As always, the Convention provides numerous opportunities for our guests to socialize, network, or to simply relax and enjoy the show!

Make plans now to join us in Columbus at the Columbus Convention Center.

Brochures for the program will be mailed in February 2016.
