The Baldrige Program is the nation's public-private partnership dedicated to performance excellence. The award is named in honor of former U.S. Secretary of Commerce Malcolm Baldrige, who was a proponent of quality management and is the highest level of recognition for performance excellence a U.S. organization can receive.
Baldrige winners are role models in innovation, management, employee and customer satisfaction, and generating results. In 2014 there were only two healthcare winners. Visit the Baldrige website for more information.
