Gregory Turchan, Premier Home Health Care Services, Long Island, New York
Richard Z. Steinhaus Award
The HCP Richard Z. Steinhaus Award is presented to an individual who has made outstanding contributions to the home care industry. It is not an award given out annually, but only when the nominee is a recognized expert, leader, and advocate for the home care industry. Gregory Turchan has been part of home care his entire professional career. At Premier Home Health Care Services for more than 20 years, he has helped lead the company as it grew and expanded, developed new service areas, and focused on remaining in sync with the evolving health care system. This year, Greg was tapped by the Medicaid Director to participate in the MRT II to represent the interests of Licensed Home Care Services Agencies (LHCSA) and home care in discussions that would reframe New York’s long term care system for the future. In recognition of his decades-long contributions to home care, HCP honors Gregory Turchan as our 2020 recipient of the Richard Z Steinhaus award.
“Gregory has participated in larger industry efforts in New York and nationally to develop strategies to protect home care agencies, workers, and clients by amplifying our voices through collaborative efforts to secure additional funding to keep services available and workers safe.” said Kathy Febraio, HCP President/CEO.
