Paul Clements Chosen as a Future Long Term Care Leader

Paul Clements, Administrator of Lynn Care Center at Warren Memorial Hospital in Front Royal, VA has been chosen by the American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) as a future leader in long term care.  Paul will join the Association’s Future Leaders program, a year-long program that offers training and guidance for long term care professionals.

“AHCA/NCAL is committed to providing educational opportunities for long term care leaders to advance their understanding of the profession, and to promote a culture of quality within their facilities,” said Mark Parkinson, President & CEO of AHCA/NCAL. “We look forward to seeing the 2013-2014 Future Leaders apply their program training and newly acquired skills to improve the future of long term care.”

"Paul Clements is already an outstanding leader in the Virginia Health Care Association and his selection for the AHCA Future Leaders Program will benefit all VHCA members," said Steve Morrisette, VHCA President.  He has already served on the VHCA Board of Directors, numerous committees and was appointed by Former Governor Tim Kaine to the Virginia Board of Health.

Since 2004, AHCA/NCAL has hosted long term care professionals in the Future Leaders program. Selected participants demonstrate leadership potential, and represent the interests of both state and national long term care providers. The program covers the latest theories and practical applications in quality management, customer satisfaction, and leadership. The year-long program kicks off with a two-day symposium, “Future Leaders of Long Term Care in America,” held each year in Washington, DC.  This year’s symposium will take place July 24 – 26.
