Driscoll Children’s Hospital receives the Texas Award for Performance Excellence

CORPUS CHRISTI – This month, Driscoll Children’s Hospital was presented with the Texas Award for Performance Excellence (TAPE) by the Quality Texas Foundation, making it the only children’s hospital in Texas to receive this recognition. The award elevates the hospital to the Progress Level, the third of five levels of achievement.

“Last year Driscoll was recognized at the Commitment Level, which is Level 2,” said Dr. Deborah Flores, assistant vice president for Quality and Risk Management for Driscoll Children’s Hospital. “This newest recognition indicates that we demonstrated with data in our application that we are making quantifiable progress in the seven categories the award addresses.”

The seven categories are Leadership, Strategic Planning, Customer and Market Focus, Information and Knowledge Management, Workforce Focus, Process Management and Results. The Texas Award for Performance Excellence recognizes organizations in many areas, including manufacturing, education, healthcare, service providers and non-profits.

The award was presented to Driscoll at the TAPE Conference at the Hilton Hotel in Rockwall on June 6-7th.
