The program sets high standards for quality based on the Baldrige Performance Excellence criteria and encourages centers to commit, achieve and excel in quality performance. Applicants may apply for three levels of awards: Bronze, Silver, or Gold, each of which requires a more detailed and comprehensive demonstration of systematic quality. Centers must receive an award at each level to progress to the next level.
