Gorski Named New Government Affairs VP
Walter Gorski is the new VP of government affairs for the American Association of Homecare (AAHomecare). Gorski started at this new position in late November.
Gorski most recently served as the director of legislative and regulatory affairs for the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association (AOPA). He has also worked as the manager of government relations for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
New AAHomecare President/CEO Tyler J. Wilson, who worked with Gorski at AOPA, said, "Walt brings a wealth of experience to the American Association for Homecare. He has strong contacts at CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) and on both sides of the aisle in Congress, as well as earlier Hill experience on a committee of jurisdiction for Medicare."
In accepting the new position, Gorski noted, "At a time of historic change on Capitol Hill, I am excited about helping AAHomecare strengthen its government affairs operation and build upon its bipartisan approach to advocacy. AAHomecare members are at the forefront of providing indispensable products and services to a vulnerable patient population, and I look forward to conveying that message to policymakers."
