County Board OKs New Medical Director Hire

Diana Torres-Burgos, the county’s public health medical director, recently announced her resignation – she’ll be leaving her job later this month. At its June 1, 2011 meeting, the Washtenaw County board of commissioners approved the hire of her replacement – Monique Reeves. Reeves received her medical degree and a masters degree in public health from the University of Michigan, and will start the job on June 20 with a salary of $125,000.

Medicare services provided by the county – including immunizations and the maternal infant health program – require that a licensed medical doctor on staff bill Medicare, via the state, for reimbursement.

This brief was filed from the boardroom of the county administration building at 220 N. Main St. in Ann Arbor. A more detailed report will follow: [link]
