Meyers Confirmed as DHHS Commissioner

Jeffrey Meyers

Jeffrey Meyers of Concord was confirmed as head of the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services by a vote of the Governor and Executive Council on Jan. 27. Meyers took over as interim commissioner of the department on Jan. 9 following the departure of Nick Toumpas, who had been at the helm since 2007. The department has an annual budget of roughly $2.24 billion and oversees New Hampshire Hospital, monitoring public health, DCYF and Medicaid, among other functions.

Following the confirmation vote, Gov. Maggie Hassan said: “As Commissioner of the Department of Health and Human Services, Jeff’s leadership will be critical to reauthorizing and continuing the success of our bipartisan health care expansion plan and strengthening our efforts to combat substance abuse.”
