News From Harlingen, Texas
Vital Statistics Department Recognized by City Commission
01/17/2019

Harlingen, Texas– This is the 19th year in a row that the Harlingen Vital Statistics Department has received the Five Star Exemplary Award given by the Texas Department of State Health Services.

 

The award is given annually to departments that go above and beyond the duties of birth and death registration.  To be considered as a Five Star Exemplary Vital Statistics Office, departments must meet strict guidelines set forth by the State such as attending training, filing 98 percent of birth records within one business day, and averaging 10 days or less for death registrations.

 

Mayor Chris Boswell congratulated Health Director Josh Ramirez and his Vital Statistics employees Noemi de la Fuente and Diana Vargas for the excellent customer service they provide to the community during the regularly scheduled City Commission meeting of January 16, 2019.

 

De la Fuente and Vargas have a 100 percent record for filing birth certificates within 24 hours and two days for filing death certificates.

 

Congratulations to the Harlingen Vital Statistics Team.
