AAHomecare to Honor Ackerman During Medtrade

The association will recognize Spectrum Medical’s Steve Ackerman as the 2021 Van Miller Homecare Champion Award for his HME advocacy work.

Next week, the American Association for Homecare will recognize Steve Ackerman, president and CEO of Spectrum Medical, as the 2021 Van Miller Homecare Champion for his efforts on behalf of the industry.

The Van Miller Homecare Champion Award honors AAHomecare members who reflect the characteristics of Van Miller, past CEO and founder of the VGM Group.

“AAHomecare recognizes Steve for his service and passion for the HME industry, determined support for advocacy efforts at the federal and state level, and exceptional contributions to the homecare sector,” a statement from the association read. “Through various leadership roles for the association, Steve has spoken before Congress and CMS as an industry expert, and represented our industry as an effective champion for HME policy priorities.”

Most recently, Ackerman served as AAHomecare’s Chairman of the Board. The association noted that Ackerman helped lead the association through significant changes brought on by competitive bidding and reached out to his fellow industry leaders and Association members to give everyone a voice on the issue.

The award presentation will take place during the Stand Up for Homecare reception at Ventanas in Atlanta, from 5:30-7 p.m. Tickets are still available online.
