IHA Political Action Committee hears from election analyst, recognizes members

David Wasserman, house editor for The Cook Political Report and one of the nation’s top election forecasters, shared his analysis of the 2020 Iowa and national congressional races at the IHA PAC luncheon, held during the 2019 IHA Annual Meeting. The American Hospital Association also honored three Iowa hospital CEOs with PAC awards during the 2019 annual meeting. The awards and recipients were:

  • Grassroots Champion Award – Robb Gardner, CEO of Henry County Health Center in Mount Pleasant and vice president of government affairs at Great River Health in West Burlington (bottom left photo)
  • Most Valuable PAC Player – Kim Price, CEO of Franklin General Hospital in Hampton (bottom right photo)
  • Most Valuable PAC Player – Lisa Radtke, chief administrative officer of Winneshiek Medical Center in Decorah (bottom right photo)

The PAC gives IHA and health care advocates an enhanced presence at the Statehouse and on Capitol Hill. The IHA PAC improves the ability of IHA and member hospitals to develop and maintain bipartisan working relations with legislators and provides an opportunity to help committed candidates get elected and reelected.
