CCH accepts CCMH's Foothills Award

CCH accepts CCMH's Foothills Award

On April 20, Campbell County Health CEO Andy Fitzgerald accepted the Foothills award for Campbell County Memorial Hospital from the Rocky Mountain Performance Excellence Executive Director Heidi Heltzel. In December 2017, CCH learned CCMH was one of three recipients of this award, and are the first organization of any industry in Wyoming to obtain any level of the Baldridge Award.

This award is the first step on the organization's journey toward the Malcom Baldrige National Quality Award. A group of leaders has already begun working on the next step, called the Peak award. Organizations must have received this highest-level regional award before they can apply for the national Baldrige award. The Peak award requires specific measurements of the processes CCH uses to demonstrate achievable results in performance in six different areas.

Thousands of organizations worldwide use the Baldrige Performance Excellence criteria to improve processes and achieve sustainable results. The few organizations recognized as national role models have achieved the Malcom Baldrige National Quality Award, named after former Secretary of Commerce Malcom Baldrige. The national award was established by Congress in 1987 in response to foreign completion in product and process quality. Learn more at www.nist.gov/baldrige.
