Call for Stories – Hurricane Heroes

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma devastated many victims across the impacted states. AHCA/NCAL member facilities, staff, residents and families are still reeling from the consequences. 

In the wake of these natural disasters, there are also those who have emerged as heroes – those who have worked tirelessly to protect others, putting resident and patient safety first.

AHCA/NCAL would like to recognize the heroes of the recent hurricanes and put a spotlight on what they have done for our members during these tough times.

You have helped us in the past by submitting stories that show the dedication and commitment to our cause that certain individuals have demonstrated. Now, we’d like your support in acknowledging the heroes whose powerful efforts have helped skilled nursing center and assisted living communities during the hurricanes and have supported the healing process.

If you have a Hurricane Hero story in mind, please email ahcapressoffice@ahca.org the following for consideration by Thursday, September 28th at 12 p.m. Eastern:

  • No more than 250 words that captures the story of the hero’s actions and impact. 
  • Your contact information (email, phone number), the name of facility, and the city and state of the facility where the story takes place. 
  • Any photos or videos we can share to visually support your story.  

We would like to have an opportunity at our 68th Annual Convention & Expo on October 15-18 in Las Vegas to recognize the heroes from Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma that are revealed through the story submission process. Any stories submitted that are not considered to be highlighted at our Convention may be shared by AHCA/NCAL in other ways.

Any questions may also be submitted to ahcapressoffice@ahca.org. For more information on Hurricane Relief, please visit the AHCA/NCAL Hurricane Relief website here.
