Steven D. Findlay, former health care reporter for USA TODAY, has joined the National Coalition on Health Care as a Senior Policy Analyst. He will be involved in the Coalition’s nationwide campaign to educate and inform the American people about problems in the health care system. Among those problems–which are widespread and increasing–are inadequate health insurance coverage, the rising cost of care and coverage, and the inconsistent quality of care.

Prior to USA TODAY, Steve was the Washington Editor of Business and Health Magazine from 1992 to 1996. Earlier, he was Associate Editor at U.S. News and World Report and covered medicine and health care for the magazine. While at U.S. News, Steve helped launch the magazine’s now-annual “best hospital” report. He had an earlier stint at USA TODAY shortly after the paper was started and before that was the Editor of the International Medical News Service.

“We are extremely fortunate to have someone of Steve’s experience and expertise working with us,” said Henry E. Simmons, M.D., President of the Coalition. “Our goal of bringing about major changes in our health care system can be attained only through a successful effort to educate the American people and elected officials about the magnitude and seriousness of the problems in the system. Steve’s background in the media and in health care will be invaluable in helping us in that effort,” Dr. Simmons added.

Steve received a Master’s Degree in Public Health from the Johns Hopkins University and a B.A. from the University of Colorado.

The National Coalition on Health Care is the nation’s largest and most broadly representative non-profit, non-partisan organization working to bring about major changes in our health care system. The Coalition is composed of almost 100 member groups, including labor unions, corporations, small business, and religious, consumer and health care provider organizations. Member organizations employ or represent 100 million Americans. Former Presidents Carter and Ford serve as honorary co-chairs.
