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

Spring is an uplifting season in that we see dormant growth from winter’s wrath shooting up to catch the light of the sun and remind us that after a cold and sometimes bleak period, life can still burst through.

It has been challenging for many of us to recall a time when we actually celebrate the new season and reflect on the next stage before us.

After 2020 and into 2021, optimism is a hard sought commodity but one we need to value and continue to pursue.

Recently, we have seen optimism and hope as clearly as the daffodils in full bloom.

While necessary precautions remain to protect our residents, their family members and our team members, Focused Care has had the privilege in the last few weeks to witness the coming together of family members and those residents who are vaccinated – as the separation of the two has effectively dissolved.  The hugs, hand-holding and tears are illustrative of the very human need to be with those we love.

It is a renewal of an extraordinary kind.  We hope it is a transition from a dark and sometimes desolate season into one with the warmth of compassion, mended hearts and a routine in life blessed with the personal touch.
