State Health Commissioner Dr. Nirav Shah is planning on resigning at the end of June.

A state Department of Health spokesperson told NY1 that the move has been in the works for a number of weeks.

Shah will become the chief operating officer for clinical operations at Kaiser Foundation Health Plan in southern California.

Shah became the state's 15th health commissioner in 2011.
