The Hancock County Combined Board of Health has contracted with a Columbus firm to provide guidance through next summer. The Courier reports Strategic Health Care will continue to work with the combined Findlay and Hancock County health departments for at least another 12 months. The company was contracted by the county for consulting services in May.
An employee of the company will act as the health commissioner during the course of the contract extension. Will McHugh of Dublin was assigned to the position earlier this month. McHugh has been involved in the formation of the combined health department since it was announced.
Strategic Health Care is being paid $6,000 a month to help develop policies and procedures for the Combined Board of Health. The fee drops to $2,500 a month in January.
