THCA members pounding the pavement at the Texas Capitol

More than 50 legislators and key staff members have learned about long term care issues from THCA members in the month of February.

THCA member companies Senior Care Centers, HMG Healthcare and Nexion Health have each sponsored a Lobby Day at the Capitol. Each company brought executives, administrators, nurses and other staff members to Austin for the visits. They presented issue briefs to legislators and their aides and discussed their experiences on the front lines of long term care.

Other opportunities will be offered for members to lobby the Legislature in the coming weeks. Companies and individual facilities have scheduled Lobby Days. Nurses Day (March 26) and Long Term Care Business Day (March 31) also lie ahead.

For information about how you can advocate for long term care at the Capitol, please contact THCA Director of Government Relations Scot Kibbe at 512-461-1964 or skibbe@txhca.org.
