Paul Mango, chief of staff at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, has been appointed to serve as chief of staff for policy at theÂ Department of Health and Human Services.
HHS said Friday it created the new role to supervise on policy planning and coordination efforts across the department.
“Having a Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy will help our leaders better coordinate their work, support each other, and achieve results together,” said Alex Azar, HHS secretary.
The military veteran formerly served with the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division. He also contributes board member work to the HM3 Partner Independence Fund, a nonprofit that works to support a variety of community efforts.
