On August 1, Florida Governor Rick Scott spoke before a crowd of more than 400 long term care professionals during FHCA's 2012 Annual Conference & Trade Show in Orlando. Along with sharing his vision to get our state's economy back on track, the Governor told audience members about his positive experiences with his parents being cared for in nursing homes. He recognized the compassionate care being delivered to our state's seniors and the need for adequate funding to ensure that high-quality care remains a constant for years to come. He also echoed the messages of FHCA's leadership by encouraging audience members to get involved in grassroots advocacy and take time to come to Tallahassee to speak with their legislators about the important work they do.
After his presentation, FHCA presented Governor Scott with an award for his ongoing support of Florida's long term care professionals and the residents under their care.
