The Pasadena Public Health Department (PPHD) has successfully maintained its national accreditation status through 2028, following a rigorous evaluation process by the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). The Department demonstrated its ability to meet the Accreditation Board’s quality standards while highlighting its work in advancing public health within the Pasadena community.

To achieve reaccreditation, PPHD underwent an intensive peer-reviewed assessment, proving its capacity to equitably address and investigate population health problems and hazards, meet community health needs, and effectively communicate health information to the public. 

During the reaccreditation process, PPHD demonstrated its ability to meet PHAB’s quality standards and highlighted its work in advancing public health in the Pasadena community. The Department first received accreditation in 2016.

“We are excited to be recognized for achieving these national standards for high performance,” said Dr. Ying-Ying Goh, Director of Public Health and Health Officer. 

“With reaccreditation, the Pasadena Public Health Department is once again demonstrating our commitment to delivering programs and services that are as responsive as possible to the needs of our community, as well as being accountable to the public, funders, elected officials, and partner organizations. We work together to achieve our mission of protecting and promoting health for all,” Goh said.

The Public Health Accreditation Board, a nonprofit organization supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), works to advance and transform public health practice by championing performance improvement, strong infrastructure, and innovation. The CDC supports PHAB’s accreditation program, which sets standards against which the nation’s governmental public health Departments can continuously improve the quality of their services and performance.
