Congratulations to Sylvia Mathews Burwell on confirmation by the Senate as the 22nd Secretary of Health and Human Services. The Senate’s strong support of Ms. Burwell’s nomination to be HHS Secretary and its earlier vote unanimously approving her nomination as OMB director reflect her well-deserved reputation as a proven manager and consensus-builder in both the public and private sectors. We look forward to working with Ms. Burwell as she takes the helm of HHS on such priorities as ensuring access to high-quality health care for our patients and communities across the country.
