Rep. Jim Waldman (D-96) toured Margate Health Care Center this week, meeting with residents and staff and thanking them for the work they do in running a "very impressive facility." He noted in particular that "the staff is very friendly and caring and that you all are obviously very proud to work here and it shows."
Administrator Tony Farinella had the opportunity to speak with the Representative about FHCA's legislative priorities, including the need for adequate reimbursement and Certificate of Need reforms that support nursing facility modernization. They also discussed Florida's long term care sector, including the average age of residents and the complexities of their care, as well as the volume of post-acute care the facility provides.
