Hill Country Memorial is proud to receive the 2014 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.

This honor validates HCM’s remarkable performance through innovation, best practices and insightful leadership. We are now one of 19 health care organizations in the country to receive this award since 1998.

We do this for our community. We constantly assess and adapt our processes to make a better customer experience. In turn, this pursuit of performance excellence serves as a model to businesses and organizations about the practices of a best-in-class hospital. Through our Baldrige Award journey, we continue to raise the bar for:

  • patient safety and loyalty
  • health care outcomes
  • physician and staff satisfaction and engagement
  • fiscal responsibility
  • community services

Thank you to our community, staff, physicians, volunteers and supporters. You make this honor possible. Thank you yesterday, today and always.
