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

Vote your conscience

Vote your financial security

Vote your profession

 

I’m going to get political in this message but not partisan. These days it may feel as though the two cannot be separated, but they should be.  Rarely does one political party or politician, for that matter, support everything we individually feel, think or want. We may be pressed into a particular identity in order to exercise our right to vote, but we are not limited to towing any party line – which affords us the luxury of voting on what makes the most sense to us.

That’s easier said than done. One candidate or elected official may espouse a viewpoint we whole heartedly agree with and another we are opposed to. We may completely align with an initiative backed by the party we are not registered as and reject a position by our own party.  That is the beautiful dynamic about elections and voting – outside of a primary for an elected official, we can discern for ourselves what we think is right based on our own values and convictions.

But none of this freedom to represent ourselves matters, unless we engage in the process.

We must vote.
