New Alaska Pioneer Homes Division Director, Ken Truitt

Ken Truitt

I am pleased to announce the appointment of G. Ken Truitt as director of the Alaska Pioneer Homes division, effective April 16, 2013.

Mr. Truitt is an attorney who brings expertise in a variety of health care areas including Medicare, Medicaid, privacy, licensing, scope of practice, accreditation, anti-fraud as well as employment and labor law. His background in law, health care administration and Alaska state government will be very helpful for the division during this time of great demographic and administrative change, both in Alaska and nationwide.

Most recently, Mr. Truitt was legislative aide and general legal counsel for Sen. Fred Dyson. Previously, he served the SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium as general counsel and interim president/chief executive officer. He served the State of Alaska as an assistant attorney general for nearly a decade from 1995-2004. He also has experience as a private attorney with Birch, Horton, Bittner & Cherot. Mr. Truitt is a member of
the Alaska Bar Association. 

Please join me in welcoming Mr. Truitt to our team.
