One of the main purposes of the national Baldrige Performance Excellence Award is to pass on information about the recipient’s performance excellence strategies that other organizations can tailor for their own needs. In that spirit of sharing the learning, MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital, winner of the 2014 MPEA Platinum Award, has made its application available on the MPEA Program website.  Each organization that completes an application addressing the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program Criteria at the national level and in MPEA responds to the criteria questions in the context of its unique organizational situation, and receives feedback that recognizes strengths and provides opportunities for improvement on its continuous improvement journey.  Readers of the MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital application should understand that the approaches used by MedStar St. Mary’s may not be appropriate in other originations and, if implemented, may yield different results.
