Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross presented Senior Vice President and CEO of Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital Greg Haralson with the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award during the annual Quest for Excellence Conference in Baltimore, Md., on April 2. Memorial Hermann Sugar Land is the first Houston healthcare organization, and only the third in Texas, to receive the award which is the nation’s highest Presidential honor for performance excellence.
“This recognition is the culmination of six years of hard work, dedication and a constant pursuit of excellence from each and every physician, employee and volunteer at Memorial Hermann Sugar Land,” said Haralson. “Each member of our team played a role in this accomplishment and I am so proud of what we’ve achieved. Our journey will continue with an unwavering commitment to provide exceptional care and service to everyone who walks through our doors every day.”
Memorial Hermann Sugar Land was one of four recipients of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award this year. To date, 113 Baldrige Awards have been given to 106 organizations, including seven two time winners; Memorial Hermann Sugar Land is one of just 22 recipients in the healthcare category.
