LCPH parking lots are idle-free zones.
Visitors are encouraged to turn off their vehicles once the vehicles are parked. In cases of extreme hot or cold conditions or in other circumstances, idling is permitted. LCPH is the first health department in the state of Iowa to achieve this high honor.
The national accreditation program, jointly supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, sets standards against which the nation's more than 3, governmental public health departments can continuously improve the quality of their services and performance. To receive accreditation, a health department must undergo a rigorous, multi-faceted, peer-reviewed assessment process to ensure it meets or exceeds a set of quality standards and measures.
Residents of a community served by a nationally accredited health department can be assured that their health department has demonstrated the capacity to protect and promote the health of that community.
