AmSurg’s Good Government Fund joined with the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association Political Action Committee (ASCAPAC) in Nashville to co-host an event for US Representative Diane Black, RN (R-TN).
AmSurg CEO Chris Holden joined leaders of the health care community in supporting Representative Black and discussing health care issues as well as the general state of politics with Election Day 2012 less than two weeks away.
Representative Black, the only nurse who has been accepted into the Republican Doctors Caucus, has had an impressive first term in the US House and is one of only three freshman Representatives sitting on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee.
As a champion of the ASC industry, ASCAPAC is proud to support Representative Black. Through ASCAPAC, ASC physicians, administrators and industry staff are attending events like this across the country to build relationships with members of the US Congress. These relationships are critical to the advocacy work of ASCA and help protect ASC payments and reduce regulatory burdens.
