Health Leaders Media

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will announce her resignation Friday after a five-year tenure bookended by passage of the landmark Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the checkered rollout of the website.

President Obama accepted Sebelius’s resignation earlier this week. She is one of the president’s longest-serving cabinet members. On Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, White House and HHS officials said.
