NAHC Announces New Committees Members for 2022

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) has chosen the leaders who will serve on the commmittees that will help improve NAHC governance, finances, public policy, and more. These committees will be vital to the overall strengthening of NAHC as the unifying voice of home care, home health, and hospice.

Beginning in February 2022, NAHC began selecting members on these committees, which are for one year and subject to reappointment from year to year.

Committee participation brings together members from the home care community with different backgrounds, values, viewpoints, and abilities to work collaboratively. These wide-ranging abilities result in a greater knowledge base, that results in better quality decisions. Additionally, group deliberations ensure a thorough consideration of an issue from all angles and alternative points of view prior to arriving at a decision.

NAHC thanks everyone who submitted an application to join a committee and we congratulate everyone selected to serve.

Senator Stabenow’s Senate Statement Honors NAHC’s 40 Years of Advocacy

 

For the last four decades, the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) has been the leading and unifying voice for patients who want quality care in the home and the providers who make that care possible. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), a long-time friend of home care and hospice, has entered a formal statement in the Senate record thanking NAHC for its years of advocacy.

Madam President, I rise today to celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of the leading voices in healthcare, the National Association for Home Care and Hospice. Established on April 2, 1982, from three separate organizations, for four decades, it has been a voice for the essential and dedicated organizations that provide healthcare services to over 12 million patients annually in their own homes.

NAHC has provided valuable and trusted information that has helped guide Congress, the administration, Federal agencies, and many other health policy planners as we support the ability of patients to receive high quality healthcare at home.

From the beginning, NAHC has recognized that complex health policy issues require a unified voice. NAHC has brought together providers representing a wide range of home services including home health, hospice care, home and community-based services, home infusion therapy, private duty nursing for pediatric and adult patients, personal care services, home-based palliative care, and more. These providers are big and small, freestanding and part of larger institutions, nonprofit and commercial, rural and urban.

Healthcare continues to shift to care provided in the home–and with good reason. Providing expanded, holistic care in one’s own home when clinically appropriate can improve the lives of patients while increasing quality and efficiency.

I pay tribute today to NAHC’s decades of work to expand access to healthcare at home, and I look forward to partnering with NAHC members and staff for many more years to come.

 

“It is very kind of Senator Stabenow to join in the celebration of NAHC’s 40th anniversary with all the other important issues that she is addressing in the Senate at this time,” said NAHC President William A. Dombi. “Home care and hospice is fortunate to have the strong and enduring support of many members of Congress through its four decades of advocacy. Senator Stabenow’s message resonates throughout Congress.

“The last four decades has seen a tremendous growth in care in the home and NAHC has been at the center of every fight to expand access to home care and hospice. That’s exactly what NAHC will be doing for the next 40 years and however long it takes to give America the quality care in the home that it needs and deserves.”

NAHC Celebrates 40 Years of Fighting for Home Care

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) turns 40 years old on April 2, 2022, and we are celebrating four decades of fighting for home care providers, patients, and professionals.

When NAHC was created in 1982, care in the home was rare and many elderly and disabled Americans had very few options apart from living in institutional settings, away from family, home, and community. NAHC’s mission was to promote, protect, and advance the highest quality health care at home. Forty years later that is still our goal and NAHC has been at the center of every public policy battle to expand access to quality home care.

“It has been a privilege of a lifetime for me to work with NAHC members and staff,” said NAHC President William A. Dombi, who has been with NAHC since the late 1980s. “The commitment and passion they have shown for high quality care for patients and expanding opportunities for care at home is authentic and deep. With the work we have done to turn this organization into the best possible advocate for home care and hospice, NAHC is poised to lead the industry into a future even brighter than today.”

Our 40 years of service to home care and hospice is painted with a collection of real stories of the contributors in our dedicated community of care providers. NAHC’s founders, members, leadership, staff, and long-standing supporters have a collective history that hallmarks our successes as an organization.

Whether you have been with NAHC for four decades or four months, we invite you to join us in the telling of that story. What has NAHC meant to you, your career, your agency, and your patients?
