Foundation Marks First Year of Partnership with ABOUT HealthCare and the Leader Dialogue Program

The Baldrige Foundation and Baldrige Institute for Performance Excellence Trustee and Mac Baldrige Society member ABOUT HealthCare are marking the first full year of their LeaderDialogue™ collaborative partnership, which was announced on October 7, 2021.   

Health care leaders have been describing a number of challenges to overcome in order to grow with resilience in this environment of uncertainty. 

Al Faber, President & CEO of the Baldrige Foundation, noted, “America’s health care institutions are challenged by an ever-changing environment, most recently the COVID-19 pandemic. The Baldrige Performance Excellence framework enables hospitals and health care systems to leverage organizational learning with a systems approach, to create greater agility and effectively respond to these challenges."

He went on to identify how partnering with ABOUT can help organizations to respond effectively to these and other challenges. "The Leader Dialogue thought leadership forums provide an important opportunity for executive leaders and boards of directors to engage and share their key insights and learnings.”

The LeaderDialogue™ program provides interactive forums for healthcare executives to discuss these challenges together, consider innovative approaches and share best practices.
