TALLAHASSEE, FL - At the 2017 Annual Conference, long-time member Max Hauth of Hauth Health Care Consultants (pictured right) was recognized with an Honorary Lifetime Membership. Hauth has a vast knowledge in construction and building codes and has been of tremendous benefit to members for a number of decades. Along with his leadership in FHCA, Hauth has been active with American Health Care Association as well, serving on the Life Safety and Physical Plant Committee.

Over the years, he has served on FHCA’s Board of Directors. He was Treasurer of the FHCA Board, chaired the Building Committee and oversaw the construction project when the Association built its current headquarters. Hauth has also served on numerous committees and most recently, as FHCA's life safety consultant and a regular contributor to the Pulse newsletter. In 1983, Max received the Association's highest honor, the Walter M. Johnson Jr. Circle of Excellence Award.

Said FHCA President John Simmons, "Max has played an active role with FHCA since well before many of our members may have even considered long term care as a profession. Many of his contributions over the years have been behind the scenes, but they have been of tremendous benefit to members, particularly in the areas of life safety and physical plant. Max knows the building code as it relates to nursing homes, backwards and forwards."

On only a handful of occasions, FHCA’s Board of Directors selects an individual with a long-standing history of outstanding service to the Association to receive an honorary lifetime membership in FHCA.


Florida Health Care Association (FHCA) is a federation that serves nearly 1,000 members and represents over 500 long term care facilities providing skilled nursing, post-acute and sub-acute care, short-term rehab, assisted living and other services to the frail elderly and individuals with disabilities in Florida. The mission of FHCA is to advance the quality of services, image, professional development and financial stability of its members. As Florida's first and largest advocacy organization for long term care providers and the elders they serve, the Association has worked diligently since 1954 to assist its members with continuously improving quality of care and quality of life for the state’s growing elder care population.
