CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia’s Department of Health and Human Resources has appointed three deputy secretaries in response to an audit last year detailing the agency’s inefficiencies.
The sprawling department has already described plans to create three separate divisions.
Molly Jordan will serve as deputy secretary of health services overseeing the Bureau for Public Health and the Bureau for Behavioral Health and Health Facilities.
Harold Clifton will serve as deputy secretary of human services overseeing the Bureau for Children and Families and the Bureau for Child Support Enforcement.
Jeremiah Samples will serve as deputy secretary of public insurance and strategic planning overseeing the Bureau for Medical Services, the Office of Health Improvement, and Grant Strategy.
A news release says the state Department of Health and Human Resources changes are effective May 1.
