HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Over 1,200 Harris Health employees were honored Saturday morning in a car parade for their nearly 14,000 combined years of service.

Each employee was recognized for reaching a 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 or 40 year milestone of service.
Cars adorned with Harris Health flags could be seen driving through a balloon archway as health executives cheered on. Honorees received commemorative pins and gift bags.
