Chief Executive Officer Matt Salmon Featured on Spectrum News 1 Worcester
SALMON Health and Retirement’s Chief Executive Officer, Matt Salmon, was recently interviewed by Spectrum News 1 Worcester to comment on the long-term care bill passed unanimously by the Massachusetts House of Representatives.
The new bill focuses on guidelines to protect the most vulnerable in long-term care facilities and provides incentives to help boost the dwindling workforce in the industry. Focusing on the gaps exposed during the coronavirus pandemic, the bill implements statewide rules with cash penalties for violations.
Matt Salmon is quoted as saying:
“The COVID-19 pandemic that started in 2020 exposed some real challenges as a result of the underfunding in the long-term care sector. And I think this bill, and our state Legislature, are doing a great job of trying to address the challenges that were exposed. And that’s not just the ownership and the workforce—it’s the chronic underfunding.”
