Hope Healthcare President and CEO Samira K. Beckwith has been elected to an additional three-year term on the 2023 National PACE Association Board of Directors. In addition, she has been reappointed to serve on the Public Policy and Education committees during the 2022-2024 term.

Beckwith was an innovator for bringing PACE – the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly – to Florida as founding president of the state’s PACE Providers Association in 2010. Under Beckwith’s three decades of leadership as CEO, Hope has experienced tremendous growth and offers five PACE Care Centers to serve residents throughout Lee, Collier, and Charlotte counties. Hope PACE cares for seniors who are at risk for nursing home placement by keeping them healthy, comfortable, and independent in their own homes for as long as possible. The program provides comprehensive, customized care plans, including services such as medical and dental care, therapies, personal care, medications, medical supplies, and essential transportation.
