“Our health district’s status as accredited is a testament to the ongoing excellence of this organization. Effective public health has always been our priority, so we are very pleased that this philosophy was recognized by PHAB.” said Health Commissioner, Wesley Vins, MS. “We hope this announcement, coming as it does after our rapidly unfolding successful public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic, is confirmation to our community, local businesses and our partner organizations that our staff is committed to quality improvement and responsive to the needs of our community.”
