Milton "Mac" McClurkan, Jr., vice president and chief information officer of Bronson Healthcare Group, the only healthcare organization to receive the 2005 Baldrige National Quality Award, spoke about this prestigious award on March 23 to College of Health Professions students and faculty and area health professionals.

The Baldrige Award is given by the President of the United States to businesses – manufacturing and service, small and large – and to education and health care organizations that apply and are judged to be outstanding in seven areas: leadership; strategic planning; customer and market focus; measurement, analysis, and knowledge management; human resource focus; process management; and results.

There were six Baldrige recipients in 2005. Congress established the award program in 1987 to recognize U.S. organizations for their achievements in quality and performance and to raise awareness about the importance of quality and performance excellence as a competitive edge.
