Statement From Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano
Baylor Plano was notified in the fall of 2013 that it was selected to receive the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in April 2014 in Baltimore. This selection is a testament to Baylor Plano’s role-model processes and results.
While it is extremely proud of this honor, the hospital’s leadership is making the difficult decision at this time to withdraw from the process.
Winning the Baldrige Award typically involves many hours of speaking engagements and other dissemination efforts across the country. Right now, Baylor Plano is working to address allegations being made against it by plaintiffs’ attorneys in lawsuits and in the media. So at this time, out of respect for the Baldrige Award and to not give any misleading allegations an elevated public platform, Baylor Plano is announcing this decision.
Again, we are proud to have been selected for the Baldrige Award; we are proud of the quality of care provided at Baylor Plano; and we are proud of the hospital’s dedicated employees.↑ Back to Top
