Linn County Public Health (LCPH) received accreditation by the national Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) in March of 2015. LCPH is the first health department in the state of Iowa to achieve this high honor. The national accreditation program, jointly supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, sets standards against which the nation’s more than 3,000 governmental public health departments can continuously improve the quality of their services and performance.
To receive accreditation, a health department must undergo a rigorous, multi-faceted, peer-reviewed assessment process to ensure it meets or exceeds a set of quality standards and measures. According to PHAB President and CEO, Kaye Bender, PhD, RN, FAAN, "Accredited health departments demonstrate a strong commitment to their public health mission. Residents of a community served by a nationally accredited health department can be assured that their health department has demonstrated the capacity to protect and promote the health of that community."
