Department of State Health Services
September 1 , 2004
As of September 1, 2004, the Department of State Health Services has been merged with the Texas Commission of Alcohol and Drug Abuse, the Texas Health Care Information Council, and the mental health services of the Texas Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation to become the Department of State Health Services (DSHS).
The new main site for DSHS is available at http://www.dshs.state.tx.us.
The DSHS Region 1 site will be undergoing some changes soon, relevant to becoming a part of the Department of State Health Services. For the time being, we will continue to be available here, as well as via the new DSHS site.
We look forward to continuing to serve the people of Texas as part of this new agency, and as ever strive for improving the health of the people of Texas.
