Texas nursing homes back Barbara Gervin-Hawkins in May 24 runoff

THCA PAC endorses San Antonio businesswoman in race for State House of Representatives District 120


(AUSTIN, Texas) — The Texas Health Care Association Political Action Committee is proud to announce its support of San Antonio businesswoman Barbara Gervin-Hawkins in the May 24 runoff for Texas House District 120.


THCA PAC leaders cited Gervin-Hawkins’ support for senior health care issues and her understanding of the need to address the serious issues in staffing and funding in the long term care sector.


“Barbara Gervin-Hawkins’ involvement in the East San Antonio community and her background as a successful businesswoman taught her firsthand how important skilled nursing care is to San Antonio seniors but also to the San Antonio economy,” said Kevin Warren, Texas Health Care Association president. “The Texas Health Care Association PAC knows Barbara Gervin-Hawkins is able to work with community leaders, understands the needs of her district’s most pressing issues and will stand as a committed advocate for her constituents.”


The Texas Health Care Association represents skilled nursing providers across the state and is one of the Capitol’s most powerful advocates for senior citizens.
