The top state budget official under Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels has decided to move into an executive position with Indiana University Health when the governor's term ends in January.
Adam Horst has been director of the Office of Management and Budget since early this year after being a top official in the state budget office since 2007.
Horst will become vice president and controller at Indianapolis-based IU Health. Horst tells The Indianapolis Star that the position will be his first time working in the health-care field.
IU Health's chief financial officer is Ryan Kitchell, who held the same state position as Horst before leaving in 2010.
The Journal Gazette reports the state ethics commission on Thursday advised Horst to avoid matters involving IU Health while still running the budget agency.
