Welcomes Caitlin Gallagher, New Director of Media and Communications, Paige Mihalik Promoted to Director, Digital and Political Affairs

The Federation of American Hospitals is pleased to announce two moves that will strengthen our public affairs team further enhancing our efforts to advocate for the patients and communities served by our hospitals.

Paige Mihalik is being promoted to Director, Digital and Political Affairs.

Paige has been with the Federation for more than three years and during that time she has been responsible for the FAH’s political action committee and grassroots programs.  She has also grown the Federation’s social media footprint and played an integral role in the successful launch of our podcast series – Hospitals In Focus.

Paige will continue her leadership role in political affairs and will take an enhanced role in the association’s public affairs’ digital efforts.  Before joining FAH, she was active in the political affairs field working on compliance issues.

Paige is a graduate of Florida Gulf Coast University.

Caitlin Gallagher is joining FAH as our new Director, Media and Communications.

Caitlin’s experience both on political campaigns and on Capitol Hill will bring tremendous value to our public affairs team.

She most recently served as Press Secretary for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. She also worked in the Washington office of Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) and on the presidential campaign of Jeb Bush.

Caitlin will play a key role in the FAH media outreach strategy, which includes telling compelling stories from our member companies and promoting patient-centered messages across our social media channels. 

Caitlin is an alum of Baylor University.
