Anthony Fazio, pharmacy services manager at North Hawaii Community Hospital in Waimea, was presented with The Queen’s Health Systems Award of Excellence on Jan. 18 at The Queen’s Health Systems Punchbowl campus on Oahu.
Fazio was honored for his commitment to patient care and safety and for the numerous changes he has made in the NHCH pharmacy that resulted in improved operational efficiency. It was noted in his nomination for the award that he “has spearheaded or been a major player in large projects that have been implemented on time and within budget. He works hard to make certain the hospital is getting the best price available for pharmaceuticals, and he monitors stock closely with an eye on expiration dates.
In addition, Fazio received tier 1 status from his staff, the highest level, in the recent Employee Voice survey.
“Anthony is a great blessing to North Hawaii Community Hospital and has significantly advanced pharmacy services at NHCH,” states a hospital press release.
