CHEAC 2016 Public Health Accreditation Status Survey
The results of CHEAC’s 2016 Public Health accreditation status survey are now available. The 2016 Dashboard indicates that six more local health departments were accredited in 2016 (for a total of seven statewide plus CDPH). In addition, eight local health departments were in the process of seeking formal accreditation status late last year. If these LHDs are successful, California would reach about a quarter of the state’s local health departments achieving this goal. An additional 14 health departments intend to formally apply to PHAB in 2017.
