STATELINE, Nev. – Daniel Mathis, president and CEO of the Nevada Health Care Association (NVHCA) said the association will be holding its annual conference at a pivotal time when it convenes Aug. 10 through Aug. 13 at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe casino and resort.
The NVHCA is comprised of skilled nursing and post-acute care facilities throughout Nevada, where industry and government leaders are facing critical needs and key decisions heading into the 2015 state legislative session as they work to provide adequate funding and better care to thousands of elderly Nevadans in NVHCA facilities. The annual conference supports the association’s work with Nevada lawmakers, state health officials and its member facilities to address deficiencies and to improve the quality of care statewide.
Conference topics include:
- Medical marijuana and how it affects the provider industry
- Using social media
- An update on Nevada Medicaid
- Behavioral health
- And more . . .
The conference opens with a video message from Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and features guest speakers including Nevada State Senators Michael Roberson and Justin Jones, who will serve as keynote speaker. “This conference comes at a key time in the history of NVHCA, our industry and our state. This is a great resource for our members and for anyone in the state concerned with improving the level of care in Nevada’s skilled nursing and related facilities,” Mathis said. “The conference breakout sessions, industry expert presenters and the opportunity to share information and best practices serves to enhance the level of care we provide to the most vulnerable in our community.”
