Contessa Congratulates Chiquita Brooks-Lasure as the new administrator of CMS

Contessa congratulates Chiquita Brooks-LaSure on her confirmation as the new administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Over decades of public service, Brooks-LaSure has been a vocal advocate for expanding access to proven healthcare services. Her record shows a firm understanding of the vital role the government plays in encouraging and recognizing patient-focused innovation. The ability of the Medicare and Medicaid programs to quickly adapt to new models of care has never been more important, and we are eager to begin working with CMS under her leadership to shape the future of acute care delivery.
