FL surgeon general resigns following criticism by Rick Scott transition team
State Surgeon General Ana Viamonte Ros, head of the Florida Department of Health, is resigning following a withering attack on her management by Gov.-elect Rick Scott's transition team.
An agency spokesman said Tuesday that Viamonte Ros had offered to resign several weeks ago, like other Crist appointees. But while most agency heads are staying for another 60 to 90 days, Viamonte Ros was told Monday that her job would end Jan. 3, Health Department spokesman Rob Hayes said.
The Health and Human Services Transition Team is headed by Alan Levine, who had been secretary of the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration under former Gov. Jeb Bush.
