Statement of the Florida Health Care Association on the Appointment of Jim Crochet as Florida’s Long Term Care Ombudsman

The Florida Health Care Association commended the appointment of Jim Crochet as the Director of the Florida Long Term Care Ombudsman Program, citing his years’ of experience working with Florida’s long term care community and his understanding of the care needs of our state’s most vulnerable seniors.

“Speaking on behalf of those who provide quality long term care for current and future generations, we applaud Secretary Corley's appointment to lead the Florida Long Term Care Ombudsmen,” stated Emmett Reed, Executive Director of FHCA, Florida’s first and largest advocacy organization for long term care providers and the frail elders they serve. “Jim Crochet has a longstanding history of being accessible and fair when it comes to working with the long term care community. We look forward to working collaboratively with him and continuing our open dialogue with the Office of the Ombudsman to help ensure continued quality long term care for Florida’s aging population.”
