One Man’s Impact on Nursing Home Administration

Harvey Wertlieb was a health care entrepreneur whose companies owned and operated nursing homes, hospital units and other facilities in the Washington area.   His positive experiences at The George Washington University as a student, where he earned both his undergraduate degree and a MHA in hospital administration, together with his dedication and success in his career in long term care management inspired him to work with The George Washington University to design long-term care management courses for students in the university’s widely respected MHA program and serve as an adjunct instructor.
