The next few years in Ohio will be critical in regard to legislation impacting physician practice, and Dr. Casey wants to contribute back to Ohio ACEP for being so supportive of him during residency and his early years in practice. Dr. Casey brings a strong voice representing emergency physicians with legislators and policy leaders, having a long history of political advocacy including being named as a Champion of Change for Healthcare by President Obama. His experience as hospital Chief of Staff allowed Dr. Casey to develop the skillset to effectively communicate with hospital leaders and the medical staff from all specialties. In that position, it was Dr. Casey’s responsibility to address practice right concerns with non-physician providers and identify solutions for ED boarding.

Dr. Casey says he understands the challenges of daily EM practice with continued shrinking resources; EMTALA implications and unintended consequences; the ongoing opioid epidemic; and academic concerns with residency programs. Dr. Casey also cites his strong working knowledge of EMS issues. Dr. Casey is eager to use this varied skillset in service to his emergency medicine colleagues.

Dr. Casey is running to serve on the Ohio ACEP Board of Directors and to continue serving as a Councillor because activity at the state chapter level affords the opportunity to advance emergency medicine while supporting his colleagues at the local, regional, state, and national level.
