HCM Hospital earns Baldrige recognition
Hill Country Memorial Hospital has received special recognition in the Malcolm Baldrige Best Practice category for Leadership.
HCM Hospital and Duke University Hospital in Durham, N.C., are the only two hospitals in the U.S. to merit that distinction in the 2013 award process.
HCM will be recognized and presented the Best Practice Leadership achievement in April 2014, at the National Baldrige Quest for Excellence Conference in Baltimore, Md.
On Nov. 12, HCM Chief Executive Officer Jayne Pope received news of the Best Practice Leadership recognition from Robert Fangmeyer, executive director of the Baldrige Performance Excellence program at the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
“Being considered for the Baldrige award is validation of our remarkable team members’ work and their commitment to provide quality, compassionate care to the communities we serve. We could not be more proud.” Pope said. “Going through the selection process has been a valuable experience, and to be recognized for Best Practice in Leadership is an incredible honor.”
