The Adair County Health Department has been named the 2023 County of Excellence by the Lake Cumberland District Health Department.
The Lake Cumberland District is comprised of ten counties in southern Kentucky. Throughout the year, each county is measured in 36 categories of standards that the district established for local departments. These criteria include areas such as productivity, patient satisfaction, utilization reviews, audits, and inspections.
This year, Adair County Health Department finished number one overall in the rankings.
“I am very proud of Adair County as our overall winner and all the individual category winners,” said LCDHD Director Amy Tomlinson. “We’ve had three different winners over the last three years. This is a very competitive award and I think it shows the pride each county has in their service to the community where they live and work.”
This marks the first time the Adair County Health Department has won the award.
The district includes the counties of Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, McCreary, Pulaski, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne.
