L.A. County offers health services job to San Francisco’s health chief
Los Angeles Times

Los Angeles County supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to offer Dr. Mitchell H. Katz, head of San Francisco’s public health department, the job of leading L.A. County’s massive and long-troubled health services department, a move that could bring to a close a two-year search.

Katz, 50, said he plans to accept the job. He was told of the vote by e-mail in Seattle where he was giving a presentation on his work on Healthy San Francisco, a program to provide healthcare to the uninsured.
