Nathan Adelson Hospice Earns Performance Excellence Award
Nathan Adelson Hospice, a nonprofit hospice organization, has been selected by the Southwest Alliance for Excellence for a 2017 Performance Excellence Award in a Workforce category.
The SWAE’s annual Performance Excellence Program recognizes organizations for excellence in quality, performance and outcomes. The program, modeled after the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, provides not only an opportunity for recognition, but also valuable feedback on where an organization is positioned on the quality continuum.
The Category Award for Excellence recognizes organizations in one or more of the following six areas: leadership, strategy, customers, measurement, analysis and knowledge management, workforce and operations. In each case, the organization will achieve recognition based on its performance in that category and the results related to that performance.
Nathan Adelson Hospice currently houses a workforce of 305 employees and 300 volunteers.
“We are truly honored to represent Nevada and receive this honor from Southwest Alliance for Excellence,” said Carole Fisher, president and CEO of Nathan Adelson Hospice. “We pride ourselves on our quality of care as well as the compassionate and dedicated team that works and volunteers for us.”
Nathan Adelson Hospice will accept its award at a banquet in early February.
