The Federation of American Hospitals is pleased to announce the addition of Erin Richardson as Vice President and Associate General Counsel. It is gratifying to have Erin join our staff.

I first met her when I was chair of the Winston Health Policy Fellowship Program. We were fortunate enough to have Erin as one of our fellows and after her year in the program, she went on to serve in vital roles both on Capitol Hill and at the White House.

Her variety of experience has given Erin a unique perspective and a deep understanding of the intersection of politics and health policy.

I am confident she will now assume an important role in the work of FAH for its 1,000 hospitals, as well as the patients our members serve.

Before joining the Federation, Erin served at the White House Domestic Policy Council, focusing on Medicare and delivery reform. Prior to that she was health counsel for the Ways and Means Health Subcommittee. Erin also worked for Way and Means during her time as a Winston Health Policy Fellow. She additionally served as Legislative Assistant for Health for Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio.

Erin earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from Wellesley College, a Masters of Arts in Bioethics from Case Western Reserve University, and a law degree from Columbia University.
