This week Members of the Finance Committee will learn what many of us already know – Alex Azar is uniquely suited to serve as HHS Secretary and ready to confront the health care challenges and opportunities facing this nation’s patients, families and caregivers.
Mr. Azar’s years of experience in both the private and public sectors equips him well to effectively lead this complex agency.
We encourage the US Senate to confirm Mr. Azar quickly. We look forward to working with him on further improving American health care delivery and financing.

More than eight million American kids depend on the CHIP program for their health care. We treat many of these young patients in our hospitals. These children and their families depend on the security of the CHIP program, we should not let them down. Today’s Finance Committee hearing is a welcome step in Congress’ work to extend CHIP and keep those kids secure.
