PROVIDENCE – Sarah Harrigan has been named chief of staff at the R.I. Department of Health.

Harrigan, who assumed the position on Dec. 30, will oversee staff management and the oversight of hiring. According to a department statement, the Massachusetts native began her career as a community organizer in New England. She worked as the legislative aide for the minority chair of the Finance Committee at the Ohio House of Representatives and as the legislative liaison for the Ohio Office of Budget and Management, where she collaborated with state agency directors and their staff on budget priorities. She also worked for the United Way of Central Ohio.

Her appointment follows the department’s addition last month of James Palmer as public information officer. With the appointments, the department “turns toward 2014 with a strengthened leadership team ready to pursue an ambitious agenda aimed at making Rhode Island the healthiest state in the nation,” the statement said. •
