What qualities do you think the new Health Agency Director should bring to the County to best meet the community's needs? Tell us at a public meeting or via an e-survey.


The County of San Luis Obispo wants the public’s input as it begins searching for a new Health Agency Director. Anyone interested in providing feedback is encouraged to take a few minutes to fill out an e-survey or attend a public input meeting on Monday, January 8, 2018 from 5:30pm to 7:00pm in the community room at the San Luis Obispo branch of the County Library (995 Palm Street).

“We want to know what qualities the new Health Agency Director should bring to the position to best meet the entire community’s needs,” said County Human Resources Director Tami Douglas-Schatz.

Those unable to attend this meeting can complete the e-survey above or contact Wendi Brown, WBCP Inc., at wendi@wbrowncreative.com. The County hired WBCP, Inc. to assist in the executive search for this position.

The County announced the resignation of Health Agency Director Jeff Hamm in November 2017. Hamm agreed to stay on until April 2018 during the recruitment process. The County is working with WBCP Inc. to conduct a nationwide search for a new Health Agency Director who can continue addressing our community’s challenging health system problems and concerns, including the mental health treatment of County jail inmates, the growing statewide mental health crisis and its effects on our community, and upcoming changes to the County’s animal shelter and services.
