Weeks after he was asked to step down as head of the state psychiatric hospital, Bob MacLeod has been tapped to work at the Glencliff Home for adults with mental illness and developmental disabilities.

Gov. Chris Sununu said MacLeod will work there a few months, reviewing cases for people who can be transitioned back into the community.

“He is not managing Glencliff; he is not in charge,” Sununu said Tuesday.

The first-term governor asked MacLeod to resign at the start of May, after state officials said Dartmouth-Hitchcock violated a contract to fully staff New Hampshire Hospital. Dartmouth-Hitchcock has said it’s been transparent with staff levels.

The state’s health and human services commissioner requested to employ MacLeod, Sununu said.
