Coconino County will merge the Public Health Services District, Community Services and the Career Center into the Health and Human Services department. The new department will integrate the name, logo and branding alignment on July 1-st. The three departments began planning the service alignment in January. It’s hoped the merger will improve service connections, simplify intake processes and improve service accessibility. A national recruitment for a director of the new Health and Human Services department is underway and expected to be completed this fall. Reconfiguration of existing County buildings to support the new service design is also being planned. The administrative home of the department will be on North King Street in Flagstaff with the northern region office on Vista Avenue in Page.
