Board of Directors & Founder’s Council
“The health of our nation is more important than any political party or partisan victory. United States of Care will chart a path toward a long-term health care solution, starting by checking allegiances at the door and putting the patient – our citizens – first”
– William H. Frist, M.D.

“We desperately need this organization – because the health of our entire country is at stake. The evidence is strong and it is simple: when people gain coverage that provides a regular source of care and affordability of needed medications and treatment, they live significantly longer and are significantly healthier.”
– Atul Gawande, M.D.
“Human disease does not follow a partisan path and solving people’s health care problems shouldn’t either. We have exciting opportunities to make health care better for people if we can get partisan politics out of the way and focus on policies that work for the country. That’s why I’m excited to be part of United States of Care.”
– Dean Kamen
“Partisanship is public enemy number one in health care today. That’s why this broad based effort to find bipartisan solutions is so important”
– Drew Altman
“Government should make it easier, not harder, to get access to affordable health care. As the mother of a child who has had complex medical needs since she was born, I’ve seen firsthand how difficult it can be to get access to the health services my daughter needed to stay alive. United States of Care will work to deliver all Americans a better system.”
