Hamilton County Public Health is known for its high level of service. As Rick Hodges, the Director of the Ohio Department of Health has stated, “we are very familiar with the resources, staffing and quality services Hamilton County Public Health brings to communities across the county. Hamilton County Public Health has gained national attention for its programmatic efforts and is routinely selected to share best practices across the state and country.” There are many examples, but two recent recognitions are note-worthy:
- In 2013, Hamilton County Public Health was recognized with the Crumbine Award, an international recognition, for having the best Food Protection Program in the United States and Canada and
- In 2014, the Hamilton County Public Health Commissioner, Tim Ingram, was a recipient of a “Champions of Public Health” award by the Ohio State University for his Community Leadership.
