There could be a new Berrien County Medical Director hired in May. Speaking to the Berrien County Board of Health Wednesday, Health Officer Nicki Britten said Dr. Rick Johansen is retiring and the county wants to find someone with local ties already established to take his place. A committee of seven members, including health board members and county commissioners, will review the applications once they’re done coming in next week. So far, Britten said the county’s gotten two. It’s hoped someone new can be picked in May so they can start soon after.
