Three Rivers District Health Department one of first in nation to receive National Accreditation

Three Rivers District Health Department announced that it is nationally accredited by the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) on March 4. Three Rivers is one of the first cohort of eleven health departments across the country (three of which are from Kentucky - Three Rivers, Franklin County and Northern Kentucky) to achieve accreditation through PHAB, the independent organization that administers the national public health program. PHAB is the national accreditation program working to improve and protect the health of the public by advancing the quality and performance of the nation’s Tribal, state, local, and territorial public health departments.

“We are thrilled to be one of the first health departments in the nation to achieve national accreditation standards that promote continuous quality improvement,” said Georgia Heise DrPH, District Director of the Three Rivers District Health Department. “The accreditation process has helped us ensure that the programs and services we provide are as responsive as possible to the needs of our communities. With accreditation, Three Rivers is demonstrating increased accountability and credibility to our public, funders, elected officials and partner organizations.”
