About Kansas Department of Health & Environment

The mission of KDHE is to protect and improve the health and environment of all Kansans.

Our agency head is Secretary Janet Stanek, who was appointed by Governor Kelly in Dec 2021. We are made up of three divisions: Public Health, Environment, and Health Care Finance (which includes KanCare). We are the only agency in the nation to have these three entities under one roof. This allows us to take a holistic approach to the health and well-being of all Kansans.
