Public Health Accreditation:
The Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) awarded Gallatin City-County Health Department accreditation in 2015. The national accreditation program works to improve and protect the health of the public by advancing and ultimately transforming the quality and performance of the nation’s state, local, Tribal and territorial public health departments. Accreditation means that the Gallatin City-County Health Department is committed to continuous quality improvement so that we can meet our community’s needs as effectively as possible. PHAB accreditation demonstrates our accountability and credibility to everyone with whom we work.
The Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB), established in 2007, was created to serve as the national public health accrediting body. PHAB is jointly funded by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The development of national public health accreditation has involved, and is supported by, public health leaders and practitioners from the national, Tribal, state, and local levels.
