Washington County Commissioners

Washington County Commissioners listen to various county reports Tuesday during the Commissioners Court Meeting at the courthouse annex.

Washington County Commissioners approved an updated agreement for medical malpractice insurance for Washington County Interim Medical Director Stuart Yoffe, M.D.

The proposed plan in April was for Yoffe to put up $1 million of his own money for malpractice protection, but the county would not have access to these funds unless they were a co-owner of the fund. Yoffe was not for the proposal and the county increased his pay by about $850 a month to offset the cost of malpractice insurance for the duration of his interim term.
