Mark Parkinson Discussed Lack Of Assistance For Long Term Care In New York Times Letter To The Editor
AHCA/NCAL President and CEO Mark Parkinson had a letter to the editor published in The New York Times highlighting the lack of assistance long term care providers received at the beginning of the pandemic, as well as long standing staffing shortages and low Medicaid reimbursement rates. He called on Congress to help us address this historic challenge.
“Though nursing homes care for one of the most vulnerable populations, the focus remained on hospitals. Lack of access to personal protective equipment and testing was a serious challenge.”Mark Parkinson, AHCA/NCAL President and CEO
