Senator Kolkhorst Named Long Term Care Champion by Texas Health Care Association
AUSTIN — State Senator Lois W. Kolkhorst (R-Brenham) has been recognized for her efforts to support and improve Texas nursing homes during the 86th Legislature that concluded earlier this year.
The Long Term Care Champion award is presented to a chosen lawmaker after legislative session, and is chosen by the Texas Health Care Association (THCA), the state’s largest long term care association which advocates for long term care.
Kevin Warren, President and CEO of THCA, praised Kolkhorst for her work to support long term care this past legislative session, including the passage of a bill to establish a Long Term Care Council that will deal with crucial issues that are facing Texas facilities. He also said she stood up for efforts that would incentivize quality and avoiding unnecessary regulation on providers with a good track record.
