Cleveland Department of Public Health

Cleveland is preparing for the first phase of efforts to improve morale and managerial practices within the city’s Department of Public Health.

City officials Monday presented Cleveland City Council with a two-part plan for reorganizing and stabilizing the department, including efforts to improve relationships between managers, supervisors and employees after an internal review was highly critical of department leadership.

The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) will not renew $1.5 million in HIV/AIDS grants with the Cleveland Department of Public Health after the city failed to meet the requirements to be eligible for continued funding.
