“Sue’s respected leadership and trusted expertise has benefitted Pennsylvania’s elderly population for more than 30 years and will be instrumental as we work to meet the challenges of an evolving landscape for long term care in the state,” said W.

“It’s an honor to serve as the president of a board that includes the leaders of the best long term-care and assisted living facilities in Pennsylvania,” Morey said. “Every day, PHCA’s members provide the highest level of care to our state’s frailest and most vulnerable elderly and disabled residents, and strive to maintain safe, healthy environments where residents can age with dignity and respect.”
A nationally recognized lecturer on wound care, Medicare regulations, documentation and geriatric rehabilitation, Morey has served as an adjunct professor, a private consultant with home health and hospice companies and is an award-winning health care author.
