The Randolph County Health Department is pleased to announce that they have achieved accreditation status with the North Carolina Local Health Department Accreditation (NCLHDA) Board. The focus of Accreditation (NCLHDA) is on the capacity of the local health department to perform at a prescribed, basic level of quality the three core functions of assessment, assurance, and policy development. The program comprises three functional components:

  • An agency self-assessment, which includes 41 benchmarks and 148 activities
  • A three day site visit by a multidisciplinary team of peer volunteers, and
  • Determination of accreditation status by the North Carolina Local Health Department Accreditation Board.

An accreditation site visit team assessed the Randolph County Health Department on April 29, 30 and May 1, 2014 and recommended the Department for accreditation. The NCLHDA Board voted unanimously on June 20, 2014 to award the Randolph County Health Department with an official accredited status.

Randolph County Health Director MiMi Cooper states, “I am extremely proud of our staff, our Board of Health, and our community partners for all of their valuable contributions, not only to the accreditation process, but to public health each and every day.”

Every four years, local health departments across the state are involved in the North Carolina Local Health Department Accreditation Process. Part of the Accreditation process requires that each health department develop a Strategic Plan. A Strategic Plan is a disciplined process aimed at producing fundamental decisions and actions that will shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does what it does.
