Agency History

House Bill 2292 (78th Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2003) merged twelve state health and human services agencies into five, officially abolishing the Texas Department of Health (effective September 1, 2004) and creating the new Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). DSHS took over all of the "powers, duties, functions, programs, and activities" of the Department of Health. (In addition it assumed the duties of the Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, the Texas Health Care Information Council, and the mental health and state hospital operations formerly under the Texas Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation.)

Scope and Contents of the Records

The Texas Department of State Health Services is the latest successor (after the Texas Department of Health was abolished in 2004) in a line of health-related state agencies that served as the state's primary agency for public health planning, services, and regulation. Records consist of organizational charts of the Texas Department of State Health Services, 2005-2006, that graphically illustrate the structure of various organizational units within the Department. Charts cover a variety of administrative structures at the division, bureau, department, office, and program levels but do not include material covering either the upper levels of agency administration or the entire agency at all levels. When personnel changes are made, the charts for each appropriate division/department are updated and re-generated. Some of the charts are marked to indicate vacant positions, individual positions that work under or are funded by multiple or different divisions, positions that are funded by the national Centers for Disease Control, and reporting responsibilities that are not reflected in the physical structure of the charts.

To prepare this inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.
