WASHINGTON – Cara Bachenheimer, a long-time advocate of the HME and complex rehab industries, is opening up a Washington, D.C., office for Amarillo, Texas-based Brown & Fortunato. Bachenheimer has worked for Invacare, most recently as senior vice president of government relations, for more than 14 years. Invacare will be Bachenheimer’s first client. “I appreciate Invacare’s continued support as I step away to help other businesses understand the impact of and help share future healthcare legislation and regulations,” she said. “I am pleased to continue to support Invacare’s government relations and lobbying efforts as a consultant for the company.” At Brown & Fortunato, Bachenheimer will expand her services in government relations, and legislative and regulatory matters. “We are excited that Cara is joining our firm,” said Jeff Baird, chairman of Brown & Fortunato’s National Health Care Group. “Cara’s expertise, coupled with our core practice areas, creates an exciting synergy.” Brown & Fortunato represents pharmacies, HME providers, home health agencies, hospitals, manufacturers, labs and other healthcare providers.
