Hawaii gov names new health department leader

By 67AM KPUA News

HONOLULU (AP) Gov. Neil Abercrombie is naming a pediatrician and administrator to lead the state Department of Health.

Abercrombie said in a statement Friday that Dr. Linda Rosen has more than 30 years of experience in medicine and has held administrative positions for more than a decade.

Her appointment is subject to confirmation by the state Senate.

Rosen would succeed Loretta Fuddy, who died in December when a small plane she was riding in lost power and crash-landed off Molokai.

Rosen currently leads the department's Emergency Medical Services and Injury Prevention System Branch. She has also been medical director of family health services and pediatric emergency services.

She earned a medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine and a master's in public health from John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
