Virginia’s Ted LeNeave among 2012 Joe Warner Patient Advocacy Award Winners

Earlier this week, the American Health Care Association (AHCA) announced that Ted LeNeave, President and Chief Executive Officer of American HealthCare LLC, is a recipient of the 2012 Joe Warner Patient Advocacy Award.  Ted served as Chairman of VHCA/VCAL in 2006-2007.

AHCA/NCAL bestows this prestigious award on association members who have worked diligently to educate Members of Congress about the needs of long term care patients and residents, and to advance quality long term care.  Named for the late Joe Warner, the annual award recognizes advocates who possess the same compassion for, and commitment to, our nation’s frail, elderly, and disabled that exemplified the work of former president and CEO of Illinois-based Heritage Enterprises, Joe Warner.  Other recipients of the award for 2012 are John Barber, South Carolina; Fran Kirley, Louisiana; and Rich Pell, Pennsylvania. The Award presentation ceremony will take place during the Congressional Briefing on July 9th and 10th when AHCA/NCAL members from across the country visit Washington, DC.
