Christopher Casscells, MD to lead Center for Health Care Policy


The Caesar Rodney Institute is pleased to announce the hiring of Dr. Christopher D. Casscells as Director of the Center for Health Care Policy.

CRI made filling this position a high priority after realizing the need to explain sound health care policies to the public in the wake of the Affordable Care Act ruling being upheld. In addition to questions that need to be answered surrounding the Supreme Court’s decision, there will be many additional issues in Delaware addressing health care which Dr. Casscells will answer.

Dr. Casscells brings many years of medical experience to the Center and to CRI as a whole.  He is a board certified orthopedic surgeon and practices general orthopedics with a specialization in arthroscopic surgery of the knee and shoulder at his Wilmington practice, Casscells Orthopedic and Sports Medicine.  His approach to building a strong doctor-patient relationship improves all aspects of his medical care, from diagnosis and treatment to rehabilitation.

In addition to operating his own practice, Dr. Casscells serves as the president of  the University of Virginia Medical School Foundation, and was previously president for the Delaware Academy of Medicine. He obtained his undergraduate degree from Yale University, M.D. from the University of Virginia. He returned to Yale to perform his surgical training requirements.

CRI is delighted to have Dr. Casscells join our cause for freedom and liberty.  His medical expertise and experience running his own practice will provide a valuable insight into the world of health care and how Delaware can best address this important issue.
