Legislators tour facilities to better understand long term care

As lawmakers gather in Tallahassee to begin committee work in anticipation of the 2014 legislative session, Florida Health Care Association continue their work of educating policy makers about the important role of long term care providers in caring for Florida's frail elders. Along with meeting with legislators throughout the Capitol and in their district offices, many facilities are offering tours to give lawmakers an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the quality care being delivered to long term care residents with complex medical needs.

Recently, Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto (center, R-30) toured Page Health and Rehabilitation Center. FHCA Independent Owner Vice President and Page CEO Wes Edwards (left) provided an extensive tour, giving the Senator an opportunity to meet with residents and staff and learn more about the important services they offer to area seniors.
