  Christian County Health Department Director Mike Pyle is resigning his post to work in Frankfort. Pyle will serve as Deputy Commissioner for the Kentucky Department for Public Health. During his nine-year tenure in Christian County, the health department became the 68th health department in the country and 8th in Kentucky to receive national accreditation through the Public Health Accreditation Board. Christian County Health Department Health Education Manager Amanda Bassingthwaite will serve as temporarily director until the position is filled.

The Christian County Health Department plans to submit documentation in January to become just the 23rd nationally-accredited health department in the country.

Assistant director Laura Hammons says the accreditation would be a boon for the county.
