The private duty home care industry continues to grow and continues to integrate into the health care delivery system. A very hearty industry welcome to the new executive director, Phil Bongiorno, who joins HCAOA after some prestigious association leadership in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, American Academy of Audiology, College of American Pathologists, and the American Public Health Association. He and the office are moving to DC to be in the middle of the action, instead of being in the middle of America where there old offices were in Indianapolis.
If you want to update your CRM, the new address as of January 6, 2014 is:
412 1st Street, SE, Lobby Level Washington, D.C. 20003
The new HQ is right next door to the action of Congress and the federal government as it is in close proximity with Capitol Hill and the Congressional Office buildings.
This is an incredibly important move for HCAOA, as it clearly positions this association to be the leader in the home care delivery model of the future, which will be a combination of government and privately funded services that all work together to assist with an aging America that wants to age in place in their place of choice, whether it be the original family home or a facility or some place that has become home due to family shifts in geography.
Welcome, Phil! We look forward to a long, pleasant and productive relationship.
