for excellence in Health Care
Baltimore, MD (October 14, 2014) – The Health Facilities Association of Maryland (HFAM), recently presented Maryland Delegate Mary-Dulany James (District 34A) with a Lifetime Achievement Award for Excellence in Health Care. Delegate James received the award during a ceremony with patients, family members, and staff at the Bel Air Health and Rehabilitation Center.
“Delegate James championed the Senior Prescription Drug Relief Act, which created both the Maryland Pharmacy Discount Program and the Maryland MEDBANK Program, making affordable prescription drugs more accessible to Maryland’s more than one million seniors,” said Joseph DeMattos Jr., President and CEO of HFAM. “Delegate James understands that health care drives job creation and serves as an economic engine in her district and throughout Maryland. HFAM members, who provide more than six million days of quality care to Marylanders in need each year, are committed to recognizing leaders for their contribution to ensuring quality care.”
Bel Air Health and Rehabilitation Center is a Sava Senior Center with 155 beds that last year provided over 50,000 total days of care to Marylanders in need of post-acute, rehab, transitional and long term care. Bel Air Health and Rehabilitation Center is rated as a 5 Star Center by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the highest rating offered by that federal agency.
Founded in 1948, HFAM advocates for Maryland’s long-term care provider community, representing nearly two-thirds of the skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers in Maryland. Maryland’s long-term care provider community directly supports an estimated $3.7 billion in state economic activity.
