Oklahoma City County Health DepartmentOklahoma City, OK
Public health departments play an extremely important role in improving and protecting the health of individuals and communities. Achieving accreditation helps ensure that we can deliver essential public health services to the public, such as preventing disease, ensuring access to safe food and water, immunizations, and preparing for and responding to health emergencies.
The Oklahoma City-County Health Department was one of the first public health departments in the entire nation to be awarded accreditation status by the Public Health Accreditation Board.
To achieve accreditation, the OKC-County Health Department underwent a rigorous, multi-faceted, peer-reviewed assessment process to make sure it met or exceeded a specific set of quality standards and measures. More than 125 health departments originally applied for accreditation, and the OKC-County Health Department was one of the first 11 to achieve accreditation.
