Representative Four Price Honored As Long Term Care Champion

Praising his support for public policy that advances the efforts of long term care providers, THCA presented Representative Four Price, R-Amarillo, with its Champion of Long Term Care Award on December 16.

“Following each legislative session, it is THCA’s honor to recognize steadfast advocates of long term care, who, through their leadership and dedication, work to assist providers in their ability to improve health outcomes of elderly patients and enhance their quality of life,” Kevin Warren, President and CEO of THCA, said.

“Representative Four Price has demonstrated a keen interest in and knowledge of long term care issues. He shares with long term care providers the ongoing commitment to elevate the quality of care for seniors.”

Representative Price serves as chair of the House Appropriations Article II Subcommittee, which oversees budgetary matters for health care and sits on the House Human Services Committee that has jurisdiction over most health care issues.

“The Champion of Long Term Care award is one I accept with appreciation and I hope is illustrative of my continuing support of Texas seniors and the quality of their healthcare,” Price said. “Public policy and our long term healthcare delivery system should encourage and support those goals and ensure Texas seniors are cared for with the compassion and dedication they deserve.”

The award ceremony was held at Ussery Roan Texas State Veterans Home located in Amarillo. Representative Price was joined by caregivers, residents and their family members and local dignitaries.

Other attendees included Mark McKenzie, CEO of Senior Care Centers and Chairman of the THCA board; Janet Morris, facility administrator for Ussery Roan Texas State Veterans Home and Mr. Jimmie Ensminger, President of Ussery Roan Resident Council.
