Dr. Tom Price: ‘A Strong And Credible Advocate For American Patients’

As The First Physician To Lead HHS In Over 20 Years, Health Care Advocates Say Dr. Price ‘Provides A Depth Of Experience’ And ‘Will Provide A Much Needed Medical Perspective’
SENATE FINANCE COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN ORRIN HATCH (R-UT): “American middle-class families have been financially devastated by Obamacare, and righting the wrongs of the misguided law is a top priority for the new Republican Congress and administration. Congressman Price has been selected for this crucial HHS post because of his experience as a respected physician and deep understanding of the health law and its flaws. . . I look forward to having [his nomination] considered by the Finance Committee in the new year and trust my colleagues will conduct a fair examination of their qualifications and experience.” (Sen. Hatch, Press Release, 11/29/2016)

SENATE HELP COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN LAMAR ALEXANDER (R-TN): “Dr. Price has a thorough understanding of health care policy and the damage that Obamacare has caused – he can see the view from the doctor’s office as well as from the lawmaker’s office. I look forward to working with him to find a responsible way to replace and then repeal Obamacare so we can move most health care decisions out of Washington, D.C., and back to states and patients.” (Sen. Alexander, Press Release, 11/29/2016)

Physicians And Health Care Advocates: ‘Dr. Price’s Experience … Makes Him Uniquely Qualified To Lead The Department Of Health And Human Services’

AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION Board of Trustees Chair Patrice A. Harris, M.D.: “The American Medical Association strongly supports the nomination of Dr. Tom Price to become the next Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). His service as a physician, state legislator and member of the U.S. Congress provides a depth of experience to lead HHS. Dr. Price has been a leader in the development of health policies to advance patient choice and market-based solutions as well as reduce excessive regulatory burdens that diminish time devoted to patient care and increase costs.” (AMA Press Release, 11/29/2016)
AMERICAN HOSPITAL ASSOCIATION President and CEO Rick Pollack: “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.… His clinical knowledge along with his congressional experience make him an impressively qualified candidate for HHS secretary.” (American Hospital Association, Press Release, 11/2016)

AMERICAN ACADEMY OF FAMILY PHYSICIANS President John Miegs, Jr. M.D.: “The nomination of U.S. Rep. Tom Price, MD, as secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services will be the first appointment of a physician to that office since 1989. With his background as a former practicing physician and as a legislator on both state and national levels, [Dr. Price] will provide a much needed medical perspective to U.S. health policy at a time of health reform and global outbreaks of new health threats.” (American Academy of Family Physicians, Press Release, 11/29/2016)

AMERICAN ACADEMY OF OPHTHALMOLOGY CEO David W. Parke, II, M.D.: “Rep. Tom Price, M.D., one of the nation’s most ardent champions of quality patient care, is an excellent choice to serve as secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. We can think of no better voice to lead our nation’s critical health care programs … We’ve worked side-by-side with Rep. Price on numerous issues since he took office in 2005, and find him to be creative, thoughtful and committed to the idea that quality patient care must govern all policies that impact our nation’s health care system.” (American Academy of Ophthalmology, Press Release, 11/29/2016)
ASSOCIATION OF AMERICAN MEDICAL COLLEGES President and CEO Darrell G. Kirch, M.D.: “As a physician and former assistant professor at Emory University School of Medicine and medical director of the Orthopedic Clinic at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Rep. Price is a strong choice for HHS Secretary, and the AAMC applauds President-elect Trump for this nomination. Rep. Price understands firsthand the work and challenges faced by our nation’s medical schools and teaching hospitals, and has long been a proponent of academic medicine. We are confident that Rep. Price will bring a thoughtful, measured approach to tackling the wide range of issues affecting the nation’s health…” (Association of American Medical Colleges, Press Release, 11/29/2016)

MEDICAL ASSOCIATION OF GEORGIA President Steven M. Walsh, M.D.: “Congressman Price has earned his reputation as a strong and credible advocate for American patients and physicians. …Dr. Price has a proven track record, he has always been open-minded and accessible, and he has a clear vision for the future… I can’t think of a better, more qualified candidate to lead HHS and protect and preserve America’s patient-centered health care system than Dr. Tom Price.” (“MAG Endorsing U.S. Rep. Tom Price, M.D., HHS Nomination,” Medical Association Of Georgia Website, Accessed 1/04/2017)

BETTER MEDICARE ALLIANCE President and CEO Allyson Y. Schwartz: “As a Member of Congress and an orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Price brings both a depth of experience and commitment to health care reform, as well as a keen knowledge of the legislative process to his new position. As a coalition of 78 ally organizations representing providers, health plans, aging groups, and Medicare beneficiaries in support of Medicare Advantage, we look forward to working with Dr. Price …” (Better Medicare Alliance, Press Release, 11/30/2016)

COMMUNITY ONCOLOGY ALLIANCE: “On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Community Oncology Alliance (COA), I want to express our support for my fellow Georgian and physician Dr. Tom Price as he assumes the position of Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). As the first physician to lead HHS in over two decades, Dr. Price understands firsthand the challenges that America’s physicians face and the impact – often adverse – that Federal policy has on patient care. In Congress, Dr. Price has always been responsive to, knowledgeable about, and supportive of cancer care issues and clearly understands the vital role that community oncology plays in our nation’s cancer care delivery system.” (Community Oncology Alliance, Press Release, 12/06/2016)
