“Performance improvement is a top priority for the AHA and we continue to look for ways to improve the work that hospitals do. Through this partnership with the Baldrige Foundation, the AHA can continue to work with hospitals and other providers with tools and resources as they continue to improve quality and reduce costs.”

“ACHE is proud to support the Campaign for the Growth of Baldrige. The healthcare industry has increasingly relied on the Baldrige criteria as a key means to improve patient care and organizational performance. As we navigate healthcare’s changing landscape the Baldrige framework will continue to be a vital resource.”
Deborah J. Bowen, FACHE, CAE
President and CEO
American College of Healthcare Executives
“Our belief is that the U.S. and most countries around the world need the Baldrige Criteria to help ensure that their countries remain competitive. The Award was considered by Dr. Joseph M. Juran and the Juran Institute as the most important quality management method of his lifetime. All businesses should continue to use the model and prosper from it.”

“Learning and applying the leadership and management principles from Baldrige has significantly affected the performance of MidwayUSA. We believe Baldrige can do the same for education, so this is our way of sharing our success and giving something back - in support of public education."
Founder and CEO
