New House Member Brings Industry Perspective

Congressman Renacci (R-OH)
This month, Provider magazine will include a new feature space profiling new members of the 112th Congress. The first edition of Congressional Profile includes highlights of senior editor Patrick Connole’s interview with Jim Renacci, who will represent Ohio’s 16th district beginning in January. He is one of over four dozen new Republican members taking office in the House of Representatives.

Renacci comes from a strong background in long term care and identifies with providers on several issues. In Ohio he owned and operated nursing facilities throughout the state as part of his LTC Management Services company. While he is concerned about Medicare and Medicaid, he also plans to promote policies for growing the economy. He points out that over-regulation of the long term care industry is a problem and identifies with providers that see the need to change the survey process.

To read more from the interview, pick up the January edition of Provider.
