Accreditation at the Minnesota Dept. of Health
The Minnesota Department of Health seeks voluntary national public health accreditation, participating in a movement to improve and protect the health of the public by advancing the quality and performance of all health departments, nationwide.
Accreditation aims to improve the quality of services delivered by public health agencies even as they work toward accreditation standards, as well as after they meet those standards. Accreditation also helps to reassure the public and elected officials that an agencies activities are at peak performance, in line with evidence-based national standards.
