The Public Health Institute at Denver Health (PHIDH), a department of Denver Health, is a nationally recognized public health agency committed to innovating practice and improving health for everyone by working with communities and partners.
Formerly known as Denver Public Health, PHIDH combines science, education, and social impact to inform the public health care community about today’s public health opportunities and ways to advance community health. The Public Health Institute at Denver Health collaborates with Denver's Department of Public Health and Environment and many other partners to inform, educate, offer services and promote policy change to make Denver a healthy community for all people. Through our combined programs, Denver residents have access to high-quality public health services in clinical and community settings.
Our services include the following:
- Birth and Death Certificates
- Clinical Care
- Community Health Data
- Educational Opportunities (Denver Prevention Training Center, Grand Rounds, TB Courses)
- Health Promotion Activities
- Outbreak Detection and Investigation Services
- Public Health Emergency Preparedness
In March of 2017 the Public Health Institute at Denver Health and Denver’s Department of Public Health and Environment received national public health accreditation recognizing the high-quality public health services provided to the city and county of Denver.
