John Mangine, Chief Operating Officer for Southern Healthcare Management, has been named the 2020 FHC PAC Star. The award is presented annually to an individual with outstanding leadership in long term care advocacy, political action and grassroots initiatives. Members of the Florida Health Care Political Action Committee (FHC PAC) Board annually select the award recipient.
Mangine recognizes the value of building relationships with legislators to give them a better understanding of the profession, its challenges and the quality care that residents receive.
FHCA can always count on him to bring a strong team from Southern Healthcare Management up for Lobby Wednesdays, ensuring they’re well versed on the issues. He has built a team that knows how to speak from the heart when it comes to sharing stories with lawmakers about the care they provide. His leadership played a key role in helping FHCA secure the Medicaid funding increase that passed the Legislature and was ultimately signed by the Governor in June.
