Ohio Health Care Association Elects North Canton Long-Term Care Provider as President
Date:5/8/2008

COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A North Canton Ohio long-term care provider and businessman has been elected President of the state's largest long-term care association.

Gerald F. Schroer, Jr., President of Absolute Health Services, Inc., was elected 2008-2009 Chairman of the Ohio Health Care Association (OHCA) by the organization's Board of Trustees at the OHCA 2008 Annual Convention and Exhibition on May 7 in Columbus, Ohio.

Schroer is a licensed Ohio nursing home administrator, and has spent his entire long-term care career in the family business. He has worked in nursing facilities from front line staff and maintenance to administrator, and has a hands-on familiarity with every aspect of our operations.

As an active and outspoken member of the long-term care community, Jerry has been involved with OHCA activities for many years, serving on a variety of committees and within the OHCA-Political Action Committee. Schroer was elected to the Executive Committee by the Board of Trustees as an at-large member, and has also served as Secretary and Vice President of the Association prior to his election as President.

During his inaugural speech to the members of the Association, Schroer said that he would pursue reasonable increases in Medicaid funding for skilled nursing facility care in Ohio, and promote appropriate placement to ensure that Ohioans receive the proper amount of care in the most suitable environment. He also demanded meaningful regulatory reform to lift the burdens of paperwork and needless directives from caregivers already overextended through a severe manpower shortage.

The Schroer Group operates a number of long-term care facilities, but also operates a variety of related businesses through Schroer Ancillary Services, of which Gerald Schroer, Jr. also serves as President: Absolute Health Services; Absolute Pharmacy; Absolute Rehabilitation and Consulting; Absolute Home Health, and Absolute Temp Staffing.

Schroer is also active locally, working with local boys and girls clubs, community services and, of course, the Canton Football Hall of Fame. The same passion that drives him to lead OHCA has well served his community and employees.

Schroer resides in Canton, Ohio.

The Ohio Health Care Association is a non-profit association of more than 700 nursing facilities, assisted living residences and facilities for individuals with mental retardation and developmental disabilities, caring for nearly 74,000 Ohio residents. It is the largest long-term care association in the state, and the only chartered Ohio affiliate of the American Health Care Association, representing 20,000 long-term care facilities nationwide.
