Derek Prince Re-Elected to American Health Care Association Board of Governors
CEO of HMG Healthcare will continue to serve in this prestigious capacity


AUSTIN, TEXAS — Yesterday, October 7th, Derek Prince was re-elected to the American Health Care Association (AHCA) Board of Governors. In 2018, he became the first Texan in over two decades to be elected to this position.

“As a board member of AHCA, I will focus on fixing the decades-long workforce shortage and funding shortfalls in Texas long-term health care, and find solutions to the strains put on nursing homes during the COVID-19 battle,” said Prince.

Prince, who began his career 25 years ago, has extensive experience in the long-term health care realm. He now serves as President and CEO of Woodlands-based HMG Healthcare. HMG Healthcare operates 30 post-acute care facilities in Texas and Kansas.

“I know firsthand what amazing heroes the staff that care for our most frail and elderly Texans are and I will continue to fight for them and the residents they care for day in and day out,” continued Prince.

Prince, who serves on the Texas Health Care Association (THCA) Board of Directors, earned his Master’s in Business Administration from Southern Methodist University after earning a Bachelor of Science in Applied Gerontology with an emphasis on Long Term Care Administration.

“We are extremely grateful for all the work Derek has done as a Board Director at THCA and we are confident he will continue to represent Texas well in this capacity and beyond,” said Kevin Warren, President and CEO of the Texas Health Care Association. “He is a servant leader, truly dedicated to improving long-term health care for staff, residents, and the families that entrust facilities to take care of their loved ones.”
