SCF wins award for excellence

Southcentral Foundation (SCF) will receive the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the nation’s highest presidential honor for performance excellence through innovation, improvement and visionary leadership. U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson announced the award recipients in November.

“This award honors the collective effort of our tribal leadership, customer-owners, and employees who have pursued excellence, systematically, in all aspects of Southcentral Foundation’s Nuka System of Care,” said James Segura, chair of the Southcentral Foundation Board of Directors. “Our ‘commitment to quality’ is a corporate goal and we work tirelessly to improve.”

The U.S. Congress created the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program and the award in 1987 to identify and recognize the country’s most innovative organizations. SCF, along with four other organizations, will accept the award in mid-April. Learn more about SCF by visiting
