(Jan. 9, 2013)– The California Council for Excellence (CCE) today announced the 2012 recipients of the California Awards for Performance Excellence (CAPE)™ Eureka and Prospector Awards Over the years, these levels of recognition have been achieved by diverse California organizations that represent leading practices and performance in business, education, healthcare, non-profit, and the military. The 2012 recipients continue that tradition of excellence.

The top Gold-level Eureka recipients are: Kaiser Permanente Riverside Medical Service Area and Sutter Davis Hospital, Davis, Calif.

CAPE Silver-level Eureka recipients are: Desert Regional Medical Center, Palm Springs; Electronic Source Company, Van Nuys; Kaiser Permanente San Diego; Metro North WorkSource Center, Los Angeles; Portland VA Medical Center in Oregon; and VA Palo Alto Health Care System.

The award program, which emulates the national Malcolm Baldrige Performance Excellence Program, recognizes organizations that demonstrate superior performance in seven key business areas: leadership; strategic
planning; customer and market focus; measurement, analysis and knowledge management; workforce focus; process management; and results.

Brent Duggleby, Chair of the CAPE™ Council, said “We are exceedingly proud of all our recipients as they have clearly demonstrated exceptional performance and are progressing on their efforts toward achieving excellence. As the CAPE program serves as California’s gateway to the nation’s Baldrige Performance Excellence Program, our Gold-level recipients can be recognized as being numbered among California’s, as well as the nation’s highest performing organizations.”

The 2012 award recipients will be formally honored at CCE’s 19th annual Best Practices and Awards Conference, Celebrating Excellence 2013, at the Irvine Marriot on Feb. 4 and 5.
