FLORENCE, KY. — Dr. Lynne Saddler has announced her plan to step down from her position as leader of the Northern Kentucky Independent District Health Department, effective December 31, 2021.
“I am honored to have been in the service of public health here in Northern Kentucky for the past decade,” Dr. Saddler said. “It has been a pleasure leading such talented and dedicated public health professionals and I appreciate the many community partnerships that have helped move the mission of the health department forward during this time.”
Making this announcement now gives the District Board of Health time to conduct a thorough search for a replacement and help ensure a smooth transition.
Dr. Saddler, who has been with NKY Health since September 2010, said she is grateful for the many agency successes to make Northern Kentucky a healthier place.
“This is a good time for the agency to transition to new leadership – NKY is in a much better point in the pandemic now, as COVID-19 vaccinations continue to increase, and the agency can start planning for the future with new leadership and fresh perspectives.”
