Dr. Lawrence Eisenstein is leaving his role as Nassau County’s health commissioner to pursue opportunities in the private sector.
Eisenstein served in this role since 2009 and steered the county through most of the pandemic.
He will leave the county spot at the end of July, officials said.
“Dr. Eisenstein has helped lead the county through some of the most tumultuous times in our history as we struggled to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic,” Bruce Blakeman, the county executive, said in a statement.
“Serving multiple administrations, his professionalism, work ethic, knowledge, and commitment to the residents of Nassau County is unmatched,” he added. “I want to thank him for his years of service, and wish him great success as he embarks on the next chapter of his career.”
