HEALTH DEPARTMENT: Focused on achieving national accreditation

September 6, 2012


COLUMBIA CITY — The Whitley County Health Department may have future plans which include seeking to achieve national accreditation.
During the Whitley County Council meeting Wednesday, Health Officer Dr. Lisa Hatcher, told the board the move would boost the health department by putting it on a national level.
“Accreditation is a process by the National Public Health Board that basically sets criteria for what you must provide in the health department in order to have an accreditation status,” said Hatcher. “We could compare ourselves to other departments in the state or even out of the state.” According to Hatcher, the health department’s ability to receive grants could be dependent on accreditation status.
Hatcher said there are many projects that have to be undertaken before they can be considered for accreditation.
