"For more than sixty years HFAM members have been caring for younger and older Marylanders in need; moving forward we envision a Maryland where people and families seeking long-term care have access to quality and affordable care from our members," said DeMattos. "I am excited to be at the helm of HFAM at this critical time and we will continue to work both at the national and state level to ensure HFAM's expertise is tapped as long-term care is reformed."
