certified logoACHD Certified Healthcare District Program

The ACHD 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 for a period of three years*.

The Certified Healthcare District Program is now available to all Healthcare Districts, including those that are not Members of ACHD**.  Additionally, the Certification process is now a simple fillable and savable form on our website! ACHD’s Certification Submission Page is an easy form to complete with all required certification fields.
