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

Early in his career and after earning his Bachelor of Science degree from Mars Hill College, Bill spent several years working as a nuclear medicine technologist and for a while, as a laboratory technician, in acute care hospitals. During this time, he also earned a Master of Public Health degree (MPH) from the University of Tennessee.

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 his consulting firm, and for the next 30 years, his company provided health care management and consulting services to hospitals, long-term care facilities, ambulatory care clinics, and physicians. In addition, he was a partner in a long-term care company that owned and managed nursing facilities and assisted living communities in West Virginia.
