The American Hospital Association (AHA) has announced that Daniel Mendelson, M.S., M.D., FACP, AGSF, CMD, will be chair of the AHA’s Section for Long-Term Care and Rehabilitation Council. Dr. Mendelson is the Associate Chief of Medicine and Director of Palliative Care for Highland Hospital.
AHA’s Section for Long-Term Care and Rehabilitation supports hospital providers of post-acute services, including rehabilitation, long-term acute, skilled nursing, home health and continuing care services as they build systems of care to improve the health status of their communities. The Section is guided by a council composed of leaders representing some of the country’s leading hospitals and post-acute care providers. Council members serve as representatives of their member peers as they advise the AHA on member service strategies, public policy issues, advocacy positions and emerging issues, as well as serve as a channel back to the post-acute care field.
