The County of San Diego’s Health & Human Services Agency has achieved accreditation and earned national recognition for its work in keeping the region healthy, safe and informed about health issues and concerns.

As one of six California health departments to earn the honor from the national Public Health Accreditation Board, it follows a rigorous process requiring review of more than 100 measures by an expert panel.

“Protecting the public’s health is a tremendous responsibility that we take very seriously,” said Chairman Ron Roberts, County Board of Supervisors. “This achievement validates the systems we have in place and the commitment of our staff and partners to work together in support of a healthy and safe region.”

“Live Well San Diego is about working toward a shared vision not only across County departments, but with our partners throughout the region as well,” said Health and Human Services Agency Director Nick Macchione. “This accreditation recognizes that we are making significant progress in achieving that aim.”
