Dye Named to Panel of Judges for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award
July 28, 2016
The Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology  has announced that Tammy Dye, Vice President of Clinical Services and Chief Quality Officer at Schneck Medical Center, has been named by the Secretary of Commerce to serve a three-year term on the Panel of Judges for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. The Baldrige Award is the nation’s highest honor for organizational innovation and performance excellence.
 
All applicants for the Baldrige Award are evaluated rigorously by an independent board of examiners in seven areas defined by the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence: leadership; strategy; customers; measurement, analysis and knowledge management; workforce; operations; and results. Based on these assessments, the highest-ranking applicants are chosen for an on-site visit by a team of examiners to clarify questions and verify information in their applications. As one of 12 judges on the panel, Dye will be responsible for selecting which applicants receive site visits, and ultimately, which applicants are recommended to the Secretary of Commerce as Baldrige Award recipients.
 
Dye joined Schneck Medical Center in 1998 as Director of Nursing in Women and Children's Services and was promoted to Vice President of Clinical Services in 2004. She was previously with Parkview Healthcare Facility in Bolivar, Missouri as MDS Coordinator and with Columbia Hospital South in Springfield, Missouri and Citizens Memorial Hospital in Bolivar, Missouri. Dye received a Diploma Degree in Nursing from St. John's School of Nursing, a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing from Southwest Baptist University, and a Master's of Nursing Administration from the University of Indianapolis.
 
Named after Malcolm Baldrige, the 26th Secretary of Commerce, the Baldrige Award was established by Congress in 1987. Awards may be given annually to organizations in each of six categories: manufacturing, service, small business, education, health care and nonprofit. The Award promotes innovation and excellence in organizational performance, recognizes the achievements and results of U.S. organizations, and publicizes successful performance strategies.
 
Since the first group was recognized in 1988, only 109 awards have been presented to 102 organizations (including 7 repeat recipients), including Schneck Medical Center. Schneck is the only organization in Indiana to have received the prestigious honor.
