ST. PAUL, Minn. – Pediatric Home Service has appointed a new board member: Erik Paulsen, a former representative for Minnesota’s 3rd Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. “Erik’s experience and leadership on health care, while serving in Congress and in the Minnesota House, will be a strong complement to our board and a welcome asset to our team at PHS,” said CEO Cameo Zehnder. Paulsen served in Congress from 2009-19 and held the positions of chairman of the Bicameral Joint Economic Committee; member of the House Committee on Ways and Means, including the Health Subcommitee; and co-chairman of the House Medical Technology Caucus. He served in the Minnesota House from 1995-2009. Zehnder said Paulsen’s expertise will help PHS as it works to establish a formalized pediatric center of excellence to ensure that children with medical complexities receive the specialized care they need in their homes and communities.
