Gary Cox, executive director of the Oklahoma City-County Health Department, said the accreditation could mean a better opportunity to get state, federal and private grants.
“We have been deemed, after all this review, to be a high-performing health department that is effectively delivering public health services to the community,” he said.
Cox said he hopes the department can work more with surrounding cities to compile resources. This would increase the department's ability to serve high-risk populations, such as children living in areas with poor health outcomes and people older than 50 who are at a high risk for developing chronic conditions, such as diabetes.
