The Mid-Atlantic Alliance for Performance Excellence is pleased to announce that Western Maryland Health System will receive recognition at its 14th annual awards banquet and conference held November 13 at the Desmond Hotel in Malvern, Pa.

    WMHS earned the MAAPE Mastery Award for their well deployed, systematic approaches toward performance excellence. Of the seven MAAPE award recipients, WMHS is one of five health care organizations to be honored.

    MAAPE serves Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, and  is one of 31 state and regional Baldrige-based award programs across the country. Applicants are evaluated in seven areas defined by the Baldrige Criteria, including leadership, strategy, customers, measurement, analysis and knowledge management, workforce and operations and results. All applicants receive written feedback reports summarizing organizational strengths and opportunities for improvement.

       Western Maryland Health System began this journey in 2017, which culminated with a visit by the MAAPE team in July 2019. “We are extremely proud to be recognized by the Mid-Atlantic Alliance for Performance Excellence with this Mastery Award,” said Barry Ronan, WMHS President and CEO. “When WMHS is recognized for performance excellence, it is yet another confirmation of our commitment to serve our area with the highest quality.”
