The American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) recognized Dick Herrick, NYSHFA/NYSCAL President and CEO, with the 2016 Joe Warner Patient Advocacy Award yesterday at its annual Congressional Briefing event.

AHCA/NCAL bestows this prestigious award on Association members who have worked diligently to educate Members of Congress about the needs of long term care patients and residents, and to advance quality long term care.  Named for the late Joe Warner, the annual award recognizes advocates who possess the same compassion for, and commitment to, our nation’s frail, elderly, and disabled that exemplified the work of former president and CEO of Illinois-based Heritage Enterprises, Joe Warner. 

Attached is the AHCA/NCAL press release and a copy of the Congressional Recognition.
