Iowa Recognition for Performance Excellence
In 2019, ChildServe was selected by the Iowa Recognition for Performance Excellence (IRPE) program for recognition at the BRONZE level. The IRPE is a Baldrige-criteria based program managed by the Iowa Quality Center.
The Baldrige criteria help organizations identify strengths and opportunities for improvement; provide training for continuous improvement and leadership development; and assure customer focus, efficiency, and workforce engagement. The first time we received this recognition in 2010, ChildServe was only the 8th healthcare facility in Iowa to be recognized by the IRPE.
