Strengthening organizational capacity to provide essential public health services
In 2019, DPH achieved national accreditation. This represents our commitment to constant quality improvement and ensures that our programs and services are responsive to the needs of our community. It also demonstrates our accountability and credibility to the public, funders, elected officials and partner organizations. As a public health department, we are also charged with carrying out the 10 Essential Public Health Services.
