Three More Health Departments Achieve Accreditation in May

PHAB recently awarded five-year accreditation status to Fulton County General Health District in Wauseon, Ohio; Monterey County Health Department in Salinas, California; and Washington County Health Department in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. As of May 15, 2018, a total of 223 health departments (31 state, 191 local, and one Tribal) as well as one statewide integrated local public health department system, have achieved five-year accreditation through the Public Health Accreditation Board.


"By putting their work out for peer review, these health departments are bringing new levels of transparency, credibility, and recognition to their mission," said PHAB President and CEO Kaye Bender, PhD, RN, FAAN. "The peer-review process provides valuable feedback to inform health departments of their strengths and areas for improvement so that they can better protect and promote the health of the people in the communities they serve."
