Tarrant County Public Health lost one of its longest-serving employees in 2014. Douglas H. Fabio, an associate director who worked for TCPH since 1988, passed away in April. Fabio represented TCPH’s interests in many local, state and federal health-related activities and organizations. He often worked with state leaders on legislation that impacted public health statewide. He oversaw several department areas within TCPH and was always willing to assist programs at any level to help them succeed and thrive. His dedication and determination helped obtain critical support for many of TCPH’s current outreach programs. Fabio was a cheerful public servant and a effective ambassador for TCPH.
Prior to his passing, Fabio was instrumental in establishing the department’s ongoing efforts toward continuous quality improvement at TCPH. A recognition event now exists at public health to commemorate these efforts. Therefore, it is fitting that this event bears his name.
The Douglas H. Fabio Quality Week is an opportunity to highlight staff efforts toward quality improvement within Tarrant County Public Health via displays of all the Quality Improvement Projects completed for the year.
There are two awards presented during the week; “The People’s Choice Award”, voted by the TCPH staff and the “Leadership Award”, selected by the Senior Leadership Team taking into account cost savings, revenue generating, and/or customer service.
The People's Choice Award recipient was Tuberculosis Elimination's "T Meds" quality improvement team.
The 2014 “Leadership Award” winner was Tuberculosis Elimination’s
“TB Meds” quality improvement team.
