Charleston, W.Va. – Greg Elliot, Vice President of American Medical Facilities Management (AMFM), has been named a recipient of the Joe Warner Patient Advocacy Award by the American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL).
“I’m incredibly honored and humbled to receive this award,” Elliot said. “I take great pride in being a voice in Washington, not just for AMFM’s patients and employees, but for all long-term providers in West Virginia and across the nation.”
AHCA/NCAL bestows this prestigious award on Association members who have worked directly to educate Members of Congress about the needs and interests of long-term care patients and residents. These members share the same passion and commitment to progressing long term and post-acute care as the late Joe Warner of Illinois-based Heritage Enterprises, for whom the award is named. All the recipients share a compassionate and caring view of our nation’s frail, elderly, and disabled.
The Joe Warner Award celebrates individuals who are committed to the improvement of the long term health care profession. Their respect and compassion for the elderly is clearly seen in their actions and accomplishments in the field. These humble and dedicated leaders have worked diligently to improve quality and help the long term care community progress. The awardees’ actions exemplify the qualities of Joe Warner himself, who devoted his life to improving the lives of the elderly and frail.
The award presentation will take place in June during the Congressional Briefing with members of Congress and 500 AHCA/NCAL members from across the country.
Elliot is a second generation owner/operator of AMFM, which owns and operates 16 long-term care, skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers throughout West Virginia. He has also served on the Board of the West Virginia Health Care Association, and is currently on the board for the Charleston Area Alliance & Chamber of Commerce, and is an At-Large Representative on the AHCA/NCAL Board of Governors.
