City and State Pennsylvania has named DeBrunner & Associates’ Michael Chirieleison one of its “2022 Health Care Power 100.”

Since taking over the reins of DeBrunner & Associates’ Pennsylvania health care consulting, government relations, and advocacy practice, Mike has pushed the firm in new directions.  From a mostly hospital-oriented practice, Mike and his team of policy, data, and lobbying professionals have moved boldly into biopharmaceuticals, long-term care, substance use services, and more.  In recent years the firm has scored a number of successes, including the successful pursuit of legislation to increase state funding for skilled nursing facilities that care for ventilator-dependent patients; improving access to pharmaceutical treatments for rare diseases; and developing innovative methodologies to improve Medicaid payments to safety-net hospitals.

Congratulations, Mike!
