"Congressman Price's nearly 20 years practicing as an orthopaedic surgeon has given him unique insight into the real-world impact of federal health programs on patients, providers and the entire health care system. We believe the President's Cabinet and the Department of Health & Human Services will be strengthened by the leadership of someone who has treated patients and understands the challenges faced by health care providers in meeting their needs.
"AAHKS is happy to assist the Senate in the confirmation process and we look forward to working with Secretary Price."
