Los Angeles county’s chief executive, William T Fujioka, said Monday he believes he has identified the right person to lead the $3.4-billion-a-year Department of Health Services: Dr. Mitchell H. Katz, currently director of health for the city and county of San Francisco.

“Given the system that he runs in San Francisco and the similarities in both the mission and the type of services provided, he would be an outstanding candidate,” Fujioka said.
