Erika Kramer, Martin Bros. Healthcare Market Developer, Earns LNHA Certification

The healthcare industry is currently facing many challenges, all while America is rapidly aging and preparing for new generations to come into the market. Recent reports project that the number of Americans aged 65 and older will double from 40.2 million to 88.5 million in the next 35 years.

This influx in Americans needing senior living resources means increasing challenges hiring and maintaining quality staff and keeping diverse types of patients and residents satisfied. In addition, this all comes along with a newly government-mandated five-star rating system, reimbursement changes and constant updates to industry regulations.

In response to these challenges, Martin Bros. is working to create the resources their healthcare customers need to thrive. One of these resources is Martin Bros. Healthcare Market Developer Erika Kramer.

Kramer has been with Martin Bros. for 11 years and has vast knowledge of the healthcare and food service industries. In addition, she recently received her certification as a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator (LNHA). With this certification, Kramer will work to assist healthcare customers with the ever-evolving changes in the industry and work alongside them to overcome the challenges and aid in their overall success.
