Friday Look: Who Will Run HHS & CMS?
A new administration means new leadership at the Department of Health & Human Services and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services—and we’re all trying to read the tea leaves. What we do know is that President-Elect Joe Biden has appointed Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, who was deputy director for policy at the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight at CMS, and Michigan HHS Director Robert Gorden to head his HHS transition team. Some of the names out there for leadership include: Dr. Mandy Cohen, secretary of North Carolina’s HHS and President Obama’s chief operating officer at CMS; former FDA Commissioner Dr. David Kessler; New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham; and former Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy. 
On a different tack, Becker’s Hospital Review ran a story this week about an Iowa hospital that’s planning to spend $1.35 million to rent a warehouse for personal protective equipment as well as durable medical equipment. You can read it here.
See you Monday!
