Public Health Accreditation

Oneida Community Health is in the process of Public Health Reaccreditation!  The Community Health Department received initial public health accreditation in November, 2018 – becoming the second tribal health department to achieve accreditation in the country!  The Community Health Department is proud to be recognized by the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) and is working to be reaccredited for 2023-2028. Public health accreditation helps guide public health work to improve the health of the Oneida Community.  The Community Health Department has been working to maintain accreditation for the past five years and will apply for reaccreditation in fall of 2023.  Click here to learn more about what health departments have received PHAB accreditation.

How Accreditation Improves Our Health
Hospitals, schools, police, and fire departments employ standards to help protect and serve the public.  Public health accreditation standards assure local health departments maximize their potential to protect and improve people’s health in their communities. Accreditation is a successful program for routinely assessing performance and improving quality!
