MADISON (WSAU-Wheeler News)   Wisconsin’s health secretary will take some time off, due to a health issue. Kitty Rhoades took a leave-of-absence yesterday so she can have a hip replaced. She expects to be back full-time by the end of next month.

Rhoades says she’ll be briefed about agency matters, and will make decisions as her recovery allows. She said she wanted to take a vacation this summer but quote, “This isn’t exactly how I planned to do it.”

Rhoades, a former Republican legislator from Hudson, became the state’s Health Services secretary in late February.
