Interview with Ted LeNeave, President & CEO of Accura Healthcare

Tom Mack, Senior Vice President of Client Development at Harmony Healthcare International (HHI), interviews Ted LeNeave, President and CEO of Accura Healthcare, in the AHCA Provider Lounge.   With 17 skilled nursing facilities throughout the state of Iowa, Ted LeNeave knows the challenges of running a SNF in rural America.  With more and more of the rural working class outliving their life-savings, more and more of rural SNF residents rely on Medicaid, which rates are substantially lower than Medicare and Managed Medicare.  As a Chair on the Board of Directors for the Iowa Health Care Association, Ted has been actively working on ways to increase funding to the Medicaid system including increasing provider fees.  Rural nursing homes are also facing a growing workforce shortage.  As a solution to this problem, Accura Healthcare has developed a recruiting strategy focused in out-of-state urban areas such as Detroit and Chicago.  Accura Healthcare seeks to attract long-term care professionals who are looking for the chance to move to a quieter town that boasts low crime rates and top-tier education with the added bonus of paid moving expenses.
