Here's how the lobbying firm describes itself: "Strategic Health Care’s vision is to become the leading health care consulting firm focused all matters where government and health care meet.  In order to achieve this (and distinguish ourselves from other firms), we will continue to capitalize on our knowledge of the health care system, our understanding of our clients’ businesses, our ability to anticipate and influence legislative and regulatory issues, and our dedication to efficient and cost-effective client service."

Founded in 1994 by Paul Lee, a former senior staff member to a U.S. Senator, Strategic Health Care began as a boutique practice with a few dedicated professionals. Over the past decade, it has emerged as one of the premier health care firms in the country. The reason for our success is simple: time and again Strategic Health Care has delivered substantive results for our clients—skillfully, efficiently, and with the utmost ethical standards and integrity.

That record of repeated success and valued service has enabled us to build a network of relationships and clients that extends across the entire spectrum of health care delivery, including integrated delivery systems, hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, hospital health plans, nursing homes, home health agencies, hospices, medical professional and health care trade associations, and health care coalitions. Those relationships—and the skilled representation our clients have come to expect—have their foundations in the individual and combined talents of our exceptional team. Strategic Health Care’s 50+ -person staff has amassed a deep reservoir of experience and success in health policy development, legislative advocacy, regulatory intervention, strategic planning, Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement, federal and private foundation grant development, and association management.
