The Georgia Health Care Association is proud to announce that Kenneth Burnett has been selected by the American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) as a future leader in long term and post-acute care. Kenneth will participate in AHCA/NCAL's Future Leaders program, which provides year-long training and mentorship for professionals in long term and post-acute care.
“We are thrilled to welcome Ken to this year's Future Leaders program,” said Mark Parkinson, president and CEO of AHCA/NCAL. “His dedication and vision for the future of long term care are what set him apart as a true leader in the making.”
“I have had the privilege of working closely with Ken through his service on the GHCA Board of Directors and in his leadership role at PruittHealth, and he makes an excellent candidate for the Future Leaders program,” said GHCA President & CEO Chris Downing. “I look forward to watching him represent our state and apply his leadership skills at the national level.”
Ken began his career in long term care with PruittHealth as an Administrator in Training in 2012 and has served as an Area Vice President within the organization for the last 7 years. He previously served as the Metro Atlanta Council President representative on the GHCA Board of Directors and is a 2024 GHCA Georgia Leader Program participant. He holds a degree in Business Management from Ohio University and a master's degree in Healthcare Administration from Clayton State University. He and his wife Lauren reside in Dunwoody, GA, with their two daughters ages 8 and 6.
AHCA/NCAL developed the Future Leaders program in 2004. Selected participants demonstrate both leadership potential and represent the interests of state and national long term care providers. The program covers the latest theories and practical applications in quality management, customer satisfaction, and leadership. The year-long program kicks off with the “Future Leaders of Long Term Care in America” Symposium held each year in Washington, D.C.
