About Our Founder’s Message

The monthly Founder’s Message was born from Focused Post Acute Care Partner’s president and CEO Mark McKenzie’s desire to keep an open communication with the Focused Care family, residents and their family members, families searching for a long term care option and the general public.  It began with introducing the company, what led Mark, a leader in the Texas long term care sector for decades, to constructing his own unique business model for skilled nursing care, and conveying to those who visited the website the mission and objectives set to enhance health outcomes and make life meaningful for Focused Care residents.

As time went on, it became clear that Mark had more on his mind than telling readers about long term care.  The Founder’s Message has become a platform for Mark to reach out to the team members at Focused Care, applaud them, thank them for their commitment and dedication and encourage them to reach back out to him with anything that’s on their mind. The Founder’s Message also grew into a place where ongoing events are discussed and comfort and encouragement given as it has addressed mass shootings, social injustice and the devastating toll the pandemic has wrought on all our lives.

The Founder’s Message presents a look into the character of Focused Post Acute Care Partners and how its mission extends far beyond the walls of its long term care communities.

A Message From Focused Care's Founder

Mark McKenzie, CEO

The holiday when we focus on expressing our gratitude is near and my family and I look forward to being together on that day. Another special aspect of this holiday is that it provides yet another opportunity for me to thank the Focused Care family for all it does.  Please know NONE of your good and noble works go unnoticed. I know what you are doing – I’ve been on the inside of our profession for the last 30 years starting out as a nurse aide and working my way eventually to an administrator – seeing and experiencing so much along the way. I believe, as the founder of Focused Care, in our mission, in our contribution to the health and well-being of our most vulnerable and I know those who choose this profession have a heart for caring for others.

So bear with me when I move the subject matter of this message to those who claim to know us and what we do, who declare they want seniors protected and provided with meaningful options in life and yet, who often, inexplicably work against us. I have in mind a national organization with a powerful and outspoken lobby and one with state chapters across the country – a well-recognized chapter in Texas.
