Philip C. DuBois, MS, CNHA, FACHCA, has been a nursing home administrator in Maine since 2000. He is a past president of the Maine Chapter of the American College of Health Care Administrators, and he is a member of the 2008 class of the American Health Care Association’s “Future Leaders in Long Term Care.” He has successfully led two facilities through four OSHA SHARP inspections (Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program), recognizing his facilities with exemplary workplace safety programs. In 2009, his facility received AHCA’s Step 1 Quality Award. In 2005, Advance for Providers of Post-Acute Care Magazine recognized his facility as the Best Long-Term Care Team in America. He is also a licensed minister involved in music and foster/adoptive ministry. In 2007, DuBois was involved in a car accident in which his wife, uncle, and cousin died, and four other family members, including himself, were seriously injured. As a result, he spent two and a half months as a resident of his own nursing facility; his teenage son was his roommate for part of this time. He has used this life-changing experience to speak to long-term care professionals nationally regarding lessons he learned, the perspective he gained, and the impact this experience made on his administrative style.
Philip and his wife Karen have three sons- Jamie, Shane, and Kaden, and 5 cats. His hobbies include foster/adoptive care, and college football, especially the Illinois Fighting Illini.
