The Federation of American Hospitals congratulates Dr. Tom Price on becoming the HHS Secretary.

His experience as a thoughtful detailed-oriented legislator, combined with his decades working in the medical field make him uniquely qualified to confront the challenges facing patients, families and caregivers.

As Congress and the Trump Administration move forward with expected legislative action on the ACA, we stand ready to work with Secretary Price to ensure millions of Americans continue to have access to affordable health insurance. Further, we look forward to working with Secretary Price to make sure hospitals have the resources to provide essential health services in the communities we serve.
