Senator Kemp Hannon was recently awarded the prestigious 2016 Annual Elected Official of the Year Award by the New York State Association of Health Care Providers, Inc. (HCP). Hannon is the assistant majority leader of the New York State Senate and the longtime chair of the Senate Health Committee.

“I’m extremely honored and privileged to receive this award from HCP,” said Hannon. “Their commitment to home and community-based care is extraordinary, and I am pleased to have worked with them over the years to bring about positive changes in these areas. I look forward to continuing to work with HCP to help families and their loved ones stay together and to live better lives as they age.”

The Elected Official of the Year Award was established to recognize elected officials who most effectively advance the interests of home and community-based care.

“Time and again, Senator Hannon has responded to the needs and concerns of home and community-based care providers and the elderly, disabled and chronically ill New Yorkers who rely on them,” said Claudia Hammar, HCP president. “He has demonstrated his commitment to preserving and enhancing access to home care.”

Most notably, Hannon was instrumental this year in securing additional funding for Medicaid providers to support the minimum wage increase and advanced several measures to ensure adequate funding for home care services provided through Medicaid managed care.
