FHCA members continued hosting facility tours this week with legislators and legislative candidates. These meetings are essential to the Association's grassroots advocacy, creating many opportunities for candid conversation about our long term care challenges.
On Wednesday, Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center of Tampa hosted Rep. Janet Cruz (D), candidate for House District 62 (pictured below). Administrator Jeff Nusbaum conducted a productive facility tour, during which the Representative visited with residents and staff and learned more about the important link between adequate funding and high-quality care.
Today, Rep. Doc Renuart (R), candidate for House District 17, visited St. Augustine Health & Rehabilitation Center. Administrator Daniel Crumb led the facility tour and provided an informative overview of the care they deliver and the many jobs they contribute to St. Augustine's area economy.
Also this week, Sen. Nan Rich (D-34) visited Plantation Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. Administrator Neil Sutton provided an extensive tour of both their geriatric and pediatric units to help her understand the complexities of and unique settings for providing care to adults, as well as children.
