On Jan. 7, Crissy Rowland from the Barren River District Health Department presented a plaque to the Logan County Board of Health and the staff at the Logan County Health Department, recognizing the district’s Accreditation.

The Barren River District Health Departments is one of just 54 in the nation that are accredited by the Public Health Accreditation Board.

Center Coordinator of the Logan County Health Department Kelly Lyne accepted the award.

The national accreditation program works to improve and protect the health of the public by advancing the quality and performance of the nation’s state, local, tribal and territorial public health departments. The program, jointly supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, sets standards that the nation’s more than 3,000 governmental public health departments can use to continuously improve the quality of their services and performance. 

“Achieving national accreditation provides a high degree of assurance to the communities we serve that we consistently strive to be a great steward of the tax dollars afforded Barren River to carry out progressive public health practice,” said Public Health Director Dennis Chaney.
