FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH RECIEVES 59 DAVIS PRODUCTIVITY AWARDS

TALLAHASSEE—The Florida Department of Health has received 59 awards in the 2013 Prudential-Davis Productivity Awards Program. The awards recognize and reward state government employees for work that has increased productivity, promoted innovation, improved the delivery of state services and/or saved money for Florida taxpayers and businesses.

The program is a public-private partnership, co-sponsored by Florida TaxWatch, The Florida Council of 100, and the State of Florida. The 2013 awards competition attracted 468 nominations from Florida’s state agencies for innovations and productivity improvements that generated $514 million in cost savings, cost avoidances and increased revenue for state government.

“The Florida Department of Health takes great pride in the team of public health professionals who work every day to improve the health of all people in Florida with efficiency and creativity,” said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. “The results of hard work by our 2013 Prudential Davis Productivity Award recipients clearly demonstrate health stewardship for Florida’s families.”

The award winners will be recognized at awards ceremonies during the month of June in locations throughout the state.
