JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – Seven Mountain States Health Alliance (MSHA) team members were recently appointed to serve on the 2012 Board of Examiners for the Tennessee Center for Performance Excellence (TNCPE). They are: Pat Niday, MSHA assistant vice president of organizational development; Shane O’Hare, corporate director of communications and marketing; Dr. Jim Paskert, chief medical officer for MSHA’s Washington County, Tenn., hospitals; Tom Tull, MSHA senior executive coach; Rob Adams, corporate director of safety, security and emergency management; Randy Ball, corporate director of process management; and David Stanton, business systems analyst II.

Each year, the TNCPE award program recognizes organizations that demonstrate excellence in business operations and results. As examiners, these individuals will be responsible for reviewing and evaluating organizations that apply for a TNCPE award. The Board of Examiners comprises experts from all sectors of the regional economy, including health care, service, non-profit, manufacturing, education and government.  All members of the Board of Examiners must complete extensive training in the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence.  Examiners take the skills developed during training and the assessment process back to their own jobs, benefiting and improving their own organizations in the process.

Each year, the TNCPE Board of Examiners contributes more than 10,000 hours of volunteer service to organizations across Tennessee.
