The Association for Home & Hospice Care of North Carolina (AHHC) is proud to announce that two of its members have been appointed to serve on the North Carolina State Health Coordinating Council by Governor Pat McCrory. The North Carolina State Health Coordinating Council is a public advisory body that directs the development of the State Medical Facilities Plan, developed annually to provide individuals, institutions, state and local government agencies and community leadership with policies and projections of need to guide local planning for healthcare facilities and services.
AHHC President and CEO, Tim Rogers, has been monitoring SHCC Activities for the home health and hospice industry since 1992. He was appointed by the Governor in 2003 to the SHCC, on which he served for 6 years. Rogers, along with AHHC Government Relations Staff, met with the Governor's office numerous times to ensure the hospice industry would have its own seat through executive order. AHHC is proud to say that has been accomplished and we congratulate both Pete Brunnick (SHCC Hospice Seat, AHHC Board Member) and Kurt Jakusz (SHCC Home Health Seat).
Pete Brunnick is President and CEO of Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region (HPCCR) and has nearly 15 years of executive leadership in hospice. Mr. Brunnick is one of 25 members appointed to the council and he will be representing the interests of hospice providers throughout the state.
Kurt Jakusz, RN, BSN is the President and Owner of Health & Home Services, and has over 30 years of experience in the medical field, both as a clinician and as a business owner. Mr. Jakusz will be representing the interests of home care & home health providers throughout the state.
