New Milestone Reached as PHAB-Accredited Health Departments Now Total 75

On May 12, 2015, the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) awarded five-year accreditation status to eight health departments.

Since the launch of the national accreditation program in 2011, 75 health departments have been awarded national accreditation status, bringing the total population now served by a PHAB-accredited health department to more than 114 million. With this week’s decisions, more than half the nation’s states — 27 states plus the District of Columbia — now have at least one accredited health department within their borders.

National accreditation status was awarded May 12, 2015 to: Christian County Health Department, Hopkinsville, Kentucky; Cobb & Douglas Public Health, Marietta, Georgia; District Health Department #10, Hart, Michigan; Gallatin City-County Health Department, Bozeman, Montana; Kitsap Public Health District, Bremerton, Washington; Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department, Lawrence, Kansas; Peoria City/County Health Department, Peoria, Illinois; and Taney County Health Department, Branson, Missouri.
