The Federation of American Hospitals is pleased to welcome Patrick Velliky to our team. Patrick will join FAH as Vice President, Legislation on July 2nd.

Patrick is a great addition to our advocacy staff. Having held leadership roles on Capitol Hill and in the private sector, he has gained a unique knowledge of health care issues and the legislative process – qualities that will bring tremendous value to our members.

Patrick got his start on Capitol Hill with Senator Arlen Specter. He went on to work in various capacities for Rep. Jim Renacci, including serving as his Legislative Director.

Patrick has also held positions at Humana, Inc. and most recently at Anthem, Inc., where he was the Director, Congressional Affairs.
