Anthony Celebrezze of OH was on of the busiest Sec of Health when it handled all of Education and Welfare as well. In this role, he had to enact the New Frontier and Great Society. He was moved to Fed Judge not because of anything he did wrong, but because his salary as a cabinet officer was so low that he had a hard time keeping his house in Cleveland, apparently. He wanted to return to Cleveland and work in the private sector, but LBJ got him a Fed Judgeship, which I'm guessing must pay more than cabinet sec. 

His actions:

Celebrezze, Anthony 1961 Rejects JFK's offer to be Fed Judge, staying on as mayor of Cleveland
Celebrezze, Anthony 1962 Confirmed Sec of Health for JFK
Celebrezze, Anthony 1963 Stays on as Sec of Health for LBJ
Celebrezze, Anthony 1964 As Sec, enacts CR Act of 1964
Celebrezze, Anthony 1965 As Sec, enacts Social Security Act of 1965 (Medicare and Medicaid)
Celebrezze, Anthony 1965 LBJ moves him from Sec of Health to Fed Judge appt
