A Fort Worth-based home care and hospice executive has been selected by the Texas Association for Home Care & Hospice (TAHC&H) as its 2022 Chairperson of the Year.
Jeff Humber, vice president of payor relations for AccentCare of Texas, received the award that recognizes an individual who contributed to the outstanding leadership as a TAHC&H committee chairperson for the past year. The nomination reflects the hard work, activities, and achievements of the committee through the guidance of its leader.
Humber serves as chair of the TAHC&H Government Affairs Committee and was selected for the award for showing dedication that went above and beyond his chairperson duties. His activities included attending biweekly meetings to move forward the government affairs strategic plan, traveling to Austin to testify on behalf of the industry in front of both House and Senate committees, and working to supply needed data to meet association priorities. The North Texas executive was also involved in implementing grass roots actions and direct contacts with legislators on behalf of the home care and hospice industry.
Humber is viewed as a national leader in operations and business development, and in human services organizations. He’s been recognized for salvaging damaged infrastructure and reversing failing programs, driving improved relationships, performance, and revenue.
TAHC&H is a respected trade association at the state and national levels. Founded in 1969, it has championed the collective interests of Texas home care and hospice agencies, organizations, and individual professionals.
