Many professional organizations favor Donald Berwick's nomination

From DOTmed news:

On Monday, 10 leading hospital groups representing the bulk of America's hospitals, including the American Hospital Association, the Catholic Health Association of the United States and the National Association of Children's Hospitals, stood behind President Obama's pick for the top CMS post...

Other signatories to the letter include the American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association, Association of American Medical Colleges, Federation of American Hospitals, National Association of Psychiatric Health Systems, National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems, Premier, Inc. and VHA Inc.

I'm perplexed. I can only conclude that this represents a very superficial understanding of Berwick based on his work at IHI which is very popular among hospital organizations. Do they know what he's really about?
