Arizona Department of Health Services Renews National Accreditation, Reaffirming Commitment to Exceptional Public Health Practices

Arizona’s Health Services Department Successfully Retains National Accreditation

The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) has recently been reaccredited by the Public Health Accreditation Board, maintaining its national accreditation status. This accreditation is a result of ADHS being evaluated against a comprehensive set of national standards, ensuring that the department continues to evolve, improve, and advance public health practices in the communities it serves.

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. ADHS is one of more than 400 health departments across the nation that are nationally accredited, a status it has held since 2017.
