President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of Rep. Tom Price of Georgia as the next secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is an outstanding choice.

It is hard to imagine a candidate more qualified to serve in this crucial position, especially at a time when America’s health care economy is undergoing a major transition. He is not only a well-schooled expert in the nuances of complex public policies, but also an excellent communicator and debater.

An orthopedic surgeon by profession, Price began his public career as a member of the Georgia state Legislature. With over 12 years of service in the House of Representatives, including his service as chairman of the pivotal House Budget Committee, he has emerged as one of the most knowledgeable and effective members of Congress on federal budget and health policy.

Given his background as a state official, one can expect that he will be especially supportive of innovative health reforms at the state level.
