Governor Laura Kelly appointed Georgianna Correll to the Quality Care Improvement Panel.

The panel administers and selects the reimbursements of monies in the quality care assessment fund. It reports to Senate and House committees on quality and efficiency outcomes in nursing home facilities, as well as resident satisfaction and recommendations.

“Our elderly community deserves proper care and assistance,” Kelly said. “The addition of Georgianna Correll to the team will help ensure that they are getting that support.” 

The governor appoints four people to the panel. One person is to be a member of the Kansas Adults Care Executives Association (KACE); one must be a skilled nursing care facility resident or a family member of such a resident; one is to be from the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS); and one is to be from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE).

Correll, Topeka, will take the seat on the panel reserved for a representative of KDADS, and replace Melissa Warfield. Correll is the facility program and finance director at KDADS.
