Governor’s NGovernor Names New Florida Secretary for Health Care Administration

February 12th, 2008 by flanews

The head of the state’s agency for Health Care Administration is changing again. Tuesday Governor Charlie Crist appointed Holly Benson to take over as the secretary of Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration. Benson will replace Dr. Andrew Aqwunobi who was appointed in December of 2006. Benson is a former state representative. She was the chairwomen for the Health and Families Council and she was the secretary of Florida’s Department of Business and Professional regulation. Her first assignment as secretary of Health Care Administration, will be to start a pilot program amid at improving health care in 14 counties.

“I think that you know that I care very much about finding affordable
health care for the people across Florida. I believed in that when I
served in the House, but as I traveled the state and talked to the
business people of Florida, they were unified. Healthcare is breaking
the bank. All of these people want to find affordable health insurance
for their employees. Whether it’s those people who work in restaurants
who can’t afford it, the young immortals who go without it and then pay
off the debt for years and years,” said Benson.

Benson will take over the agency later this month.
