The Allegheny County Board of Health this afternoon confirmed Boston-area health administrator Karen Hacker as the county's new health department director.
The unanimous vote came after a months-long national search. Dr. Hacker will replace acting director Ronald Voorhees in September.
Dr. Voorhees said his successor has plans to add several new administrative positions and beef up the department's data staff. As for him, he's still figuring out what's next.
