On behalf of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we are pleased to congratulate the Madison County Health Department on achieving accreditation by the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB).

Moreover, because the national accreditation program seeks to advance the quality and performance of all health departments, your participation in this program indicates your commitment to the continuous improvement of your health department’s services.
Receiving recognition from PHAB as an accredited health department is an impressive achievement.

We commend the Madison County Health Department for this extraordinary accomplishment.
