A hos­pi­tal and two health­care sec­tor busi­nesses are among the seven re­cip­i­ents of the 2010 Mal­colm Baldrige Na­tional Qual­ity Awards, which honor per­for­mance ex­cel­lence, in­no­va­tion and lead­er­ship. Ad­vo­cate Good Sa­mar­i­tan Hos­pi­tal, Down­ers Grove, Ill.; Me­drad, a med­i­cal de­vice man­u­fac­turer based in War­ren­dale, Pa.; and Studer Group, a health­care con­sult­ing and coach­ing com­pany based in Gulf Breeze, Fla., re­ceived the award. “This award is unique in that it hon­ors the col­lec­tive ef­fort of an en­tire or­ga­ni­za­tion that has sys­tem­at­i­cally strived to achieve ex­cel­lence in all as­pects of its work,” U.S. Com­merce Sec­re­tary Gary Locke said in a news re­lease. The Baldrige Per­for­mance Ex­cel­lence Pro­gram is over­seen by the Com­merce Depart­ment’s Na­tional In­sti­tute of Stan­dards and Technology.
