Pathway to Accreditation

The Public Health Division is pursuing accreditation through the National Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB).  This rigorous, voluntary process would recognize our county health department for meeting national standards for public health quality and performance. Accreditation through this national body requires submitting plans and documentation that we believe will enhance our work overall.
