Literature: Public Health Regionalization Study


This 29-page report, written by Patrick M. Bernet, PhD, Assistant Professor of Health Administration at Florida Atlantic University, aims to answer questions about the organization of public health service delivery. In particular, Dr. Bernet's study explores the potential impact of regionalizing public health services in Kansas and Massachusetts, as well as investigates the financial and economic facets of regionalization in several other states.

Dr. Bernet seeks to provide study participants with a shared starting point for future discussions about regionalization, and how it could connect with national accreditation for state and local health departments.
