The ACHD Certified Healthcare District Program is Now Online!
ACHD’s Certified Healthcare District Program promotes good governance for Healthcare Districts by creating a core set of accountability and transparency standards. This core set of ACHD standards is known as Best Practices in Governance and Districts that demonstrate compliance are designated by ACHD as a Certified Healthcare District.

The Certified Healthcare District Program is now a fully web-based process! ACHD’s Certification Portal allows users access to valuable recourses, including a document library of other Certified Healthcare Districts and a step-by-step guide to completing the program. The Certification portal allows Trustees and Executive leaders a guided way to come together and better understand California’s laws, regulations and best practices in governance.

The designation of Certified Healthcare District is valid for three years, at which time Districts may renew.
