The City of Middletown Health Department achieved our national accreditation status through the Public Health Accreditation Board in November of 2022. We are committed to quality and performance improvement, collaboration, and public health practice. We are proud to have our work and programs nationally recognized and remain committed to the health and wellbeing of our community.
Public Health Accreditation is a national program developed to measure health department performance against an established set of nationally recognized, practice-focused and evidence-based standards. Overseen by the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) and jointly supported by the Centers for Disease Control Prevention (CDC) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, PHAB modeled its accreditation requirements on the Ten Essential Public Health Services to ensure all applicants meet or exceed an established baseline of quality and services.
The journey towards Public Health Accreditation requires the close inspection of our core programs, policies and processes to ensure that they not only meet the standards set by PHAB, but that we continuously work to improve how we deliver Public Health to all.
