Six Organizations Honored with Performance Excellence Awards

PHOENIX, AZ (December 8, 2014) – The Southwest Alliance for Excellence (SWAE), announced today the six recipients of the 2014 Performance Excellence Program.  

The annual Performance Excellence Program recognizes organizations for excellence in quality, performance, and outcomes.  The program, modeled after the Malcolm Baldrige Award criteria, provides not only an opportunity for recognition, but also valuable feedback on where an organization is positioned on the quality continuum.  

In addition to formal recognition, the SWAE’s multi-tiered process assists organizations in Arizona, Nevada and Utah along their path to achieving performance excellence, which means being role models in customer and employee satisfaction, sound management, innovation and results.

Awards will be presented at a banquet to be held from 11:30am-1:30pm on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 at the Chaparral Suites Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. The keynote speaker at the Banquet will be Carolyn Campos, MSN RNC of Sutter Davis Hospital in California, a 2013 Baldrige National Award Recipient.

The Pioneer Award for Excellence will also be presented at a City Council meeting with the Mayor of Henderson, NV at a date yet to be determined. Additional information about the Awards is available at or by calling 480-874-5815. 

Recipients for the 2014 Performance Excellence Program are:

Pioneer Award for Excellence   (Organization Level)

  • City of Henderson, Nevada

Showcase in Excellence Awards   (Process Level)

  • Arizona State Retirement System – “Online Member Statements”
  • Arizona State Retirement System – “Online Refund Process”
  • Deer Valley Unified School District, AZ – “Campus Improvement Plan”
  • University of Phoenix – “Prior Learning Assessment Professional Training Portfolio”
  • Yuma Regional Medical Center, AZ – Reducing Hospital Acquired Pressure Ulcers: One Patient at a Time”

“SWAE is proud to continue empowering organizations to pursue performance excellence,

improve outcomes and contribute to the economic strength of their community and state.

This evaluation process and feedback is one of the best methodologies available to develop a higher level of organizational performance, said Karen Shepard, Executive Director of the Southwest Alliance for Excellence.”

The Pioneer Award for Excellence honors organizations in the early stages of carrying out operations with repeatable processes, evaluation, and improvement and there is early coordination among organizational units. Strategy and quantitative goals are being defined. Some results demonstrate good performance levels and use of comparative and trend data is in the early stages.

The Showcase in Excellence Award recognizes teams for one specific process that is innovative or a cutting-edge approach. It may be used as a role model in comparison to competitors or result in exceptional performance. It could also be a routine process performed in an extraordinary manner.

The 2014 Board of Examiners, made up of more than 45 experts in business, education healthcare and government spent more than 4500 hours assessing this year’s applicants in seven areas: leadership, strategic planning, customer focus, measurement, analysis and knowledge management, workforce focus, operations focus, and results. The SWAE Panel of Judges is responsible for validating the integrity of the award process and determining recognition levels for each of the applicants. The Panel is comprised of experts selected from all industry sectors with experience at both the state and national levels.

Applications for the 2015 program will be available in February 2015.

Established in 1990, The Southwest Alliance for Excellence is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that advances improvement and excellence in organizations, communities and individuals throughout

Arizona, Nevada and Utah by using the Baldrige Criteria.
