Representatives from Medline have served on the Political Action and Involvement Committee, and the Survey Regulatory Committee to target workforce and quality initiatives and participated in countless conferences, including the Quality Summit and CEO Multifacility Conference. Medline also is an AHCA/NCAL Pledge Partner, providing support for the organization during COVID-19.
“Partnering with AHCA/NCAL is truly a joint effort that brings together experts from across the country. It allows us to share expertise and learn about how the needs of our customers continue to evolve so we can develop solutions that improve the lives of the residents, families and staff of our customers,” said Shawn Scott, vice president of strategic business development with Medline, who has served on the AHCA Board of Governors, the NCAL Board of Directors, the Political Action and Involvement Committee, and the Survey Regulatory Committee for 15-plus years.
Advancing long-term care solutions
Scott has also led Medline’s participation in the AHCA/NCAL Congressional Briefing to advocate for solutions to critical issues impacting care organizations. This year’s meetings with members of Congress included 500 long-term care providers and focused on the financial future of the industry and viable resources to increase access to care in communities. To recognize Scott’s commitment to the long-term care sector and advancing the needs of the country’s elderly and individuals with disabilities, AHCA/NCAL presented him with the Joe Warner Patient Advocacy Award at this year’s Congressional Briefing.
