The Arizona Department of Health Services Maintains National Accreditation

Achieving National Accreditation: Arizona Department of Health Services Reaffirms Dedication to Public Health Excellence

In Arizona, the Department of Health Services (ADHS) has managed to retain its national accreditation status through the Public Health Accreditation Board. This accreditation means that ADHS adheres to comprehensive national standards in public health practices. It is important to maintain this status because it ensures that health departments are always improving and evolving to better serve their communities.

Jennie Cunico, the Executive Deputy Director of ADHS, expressed pride in her department’s commitment to exceptional standards across Arizona. She also highlighted that ADHS is not the only Arizona health department with this accreditation, as health departments in Maricopa, Mohave, Pima, and Yavapai counties, as well as the Pascua Yaqui Health Services Division also meet these high standards.

According to Cunico, holding this accreditation demonstrates a dedication to improving public health practices and providing quality services to the communities they serve. This reaffirms ADHS’s ongoing commitment to providing excellence in public health throughout Arizona.

Since 2017, ADHS has been among over 400 nationally accredited health departments. The Public Health Accreditation Board evaluates health departments based on a set of criteria related to governance, management, program administration, financial management, environmental management systems and risk management systems. The reaccreditation process takes place every four years.

In conclusion, the Arizona Department of Health Services has once again maintained its national accreditation status through rigorous evaluation by the Public Health Accreditation Board. This achievement demonstrates a strong commitment from ADHS staff and leadership towards providing exceptional public health services throughout Arizona.
