New York City, NY - Marcum LLP, a top national accounting and advisory firm, will host the Firm's first Long-Term Care Symposium on May 5 at the Mohegan Sun resort in Uncasville, Connecticut.  The symposium will address the current state of and future outlook for the long-term care industry in New England.

Keynote presentations will be delivered by Anirban Basu, Marcum's Chief Economist and an internationally recognized industrial economics expert, and John E. Poirier, President & CEO of the New Hampshire Health Care Association.  The event is expected to draw decision-makers and top industry executives from across the New England region.

"The long-term care industry is an arena in flux, deeply impacted by Federal and State legislative changes, economic turmoil and resident expectations," said Matthew S. Bavolack, a Principal in Marcum's  New Haven office and leader of the Firm's National Healthcare Practice. "Providers are under pressure to reengineer their operations in order to meet these and other challenges, not the least of which is the aging of the baby boomer population. The symposium will be a forum for insightful discussion and forward-looking analysis of where the industry is headed."

Sponsors include Continuum Rehabilitation LLC; Healthcare Management Solutions, Inc.; M&T Bank; Murtha Cullina LLP; Omnicare, Inc.; KBE Building Corporation; and Health Consultants Group.
