The achievement of national accreditation will help guide our work to better protect, promote and preserve the health of the people in our community. Health Commissioner Melissa Howell stated “When you see the symbol of public health accreditation you will know that an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organization has closely examined our facility, procedures and reports. It means we, as an organization care enough about our residents to strive for the highest level of service and performance possible. All Greene County Public Health employees have worked to make this day a reality. Our employees are dedicated professionals who seek to make a difference in our communities every day.
