Bill J. Crouch

Bill J. Crouch was appointed Cabinet Secretary of the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) in January 2017 by Governor Jim Justice.

After working in acute care hospitals for several years, Bill put his public health care knowledge to use in West Virginia for 10 years, first at the West Virginia State Health Department, Office of Community Health Services and later, as the first Executive Director of what is now the West Virginia Health Care Authority where he stayed through 1986.

In 1987, Bill started a health care consulting firm, and for the next 30 years, his company provided health care management and consulting services throughout West Virginia. In addition, he was a partner in a long-term care company that owned and managed long-term care facilities in West Virginia.

Bill retired in July 2016 and is quick to tell you that he failed miserably at retirement. Now, as Cabinet Secretary of DHHR, he is dedicated to protecting the health and well-being of all West Virginians.
