A former commissioner of the state Department of Administration has been appointed to the Alaska Health Care Commission.

The appointment of Becky Hultberg was made by Gov. Sean Parnell.

Hultberg, who resigned as Administration commissioner late last year, currently serves as a senior vice president of the Alaska State Hospital and Nursing Home Association. Parnell's office, in a release, says Hultberg's appointment was to a seat nominated by the association.

The commission provides recommendations on a statewide health care policy and on ways to improve Alaskans' health.
