Press Release

Statement on the Nomination of Rep. Tom Price as HHS Secretary

Rick Pollack
President and CEO
American Hospital Association

As health care continues to evolve and as care becomes more patient centered, Dr. Price’s experience both as a surgeon, along with practicing at Emory University and Grady Memorial Hospital, makes him uniquely qualified to lead the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). He has spent most of his career working in hospitals as an orthopedic surgeon, and his experience as a provider of care will serve patients well in this new role. We have worked with him as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee and as Chairman of the House Budget Committee. His clinical knowledge along with his congressional experience make him an impressively qualified candidate for HHS secretary.

We look forward to working with him in his new capacity to advance better health for the patients and communities we serve.
