Arizona Department of Health Services Renews National Accreditation, Showcasing Commitment to Excellence in Public Health

Arizona’s Health Services Department Successfully Retains National Accreditation

The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) has been recognized for its excellence in public health once again, as it has successfully maintained its national accreditation status through the Public Health Accreditation Board. This accreditation is a testament to ADHS’s commitment to upholding the highest standards in public health and providing quality services to the communities it serves.

As one of more than 400 health departments across the nation, ADHS has held this status since 2017. The department was evaluated against a comprehensive set of national standards, ensuring that it continues to evolve, improve, and advance public health practices in Arizona.

ADHS Executive Deputy Director, Jennie Cunico, expressed her pride in this achievement. “This reaccreditation is a testament to our commitment to exceptional standards throughout Arizona,” she said. “We are honored to continue holding this status alongside health departments in Maricopa, Mohave, Pima, and Yavapai counties, as well as the Pascua Yaqui Health Services Division.”

Maintaining this national accreditation allows ADHS to ensure that they are meeting the highest standards in public health and providing quality services to the communities they serve. As Cunico stated, “We will continue to work hard every day to provide excellent public health services and protect the health and well-being of all Arizonans.”
