Mission Foodservice is honored to have been chosen as a winner of the seventh annual Pinnacle Award, presented by the Premier healthcare alliance. As one of 27 suppliers to receive the Pinnacle Award, Mission Foodservice was recognized for its commitment to performance.
The Pinnacle Award rewards Premier’s contracted suppliers for their outstanding management of Premier agreements and their drive toward the mutual goal of providing clinical and financial value to the alliance members of Premier. In selecting recipients, performance data is collected and scored over four successive calendar quarters.
Tom Daley, vice president of foodservice for Mission Foods, accepted the award at Premier’s 2012 Annual Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition in Nashville, Tennessee. The award ceremony was held June 7 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center.
“I am proud to accept this award on behalf of our organization,” Daley says. “We are honored to continue our commitment of giving customers the products and ideas they need to move business forward.”
Premier Healthcare also awarded Mission Foodservice’s Southeast national account manager, Carrie Simmons, with the Passion of Excellence Finalist Award, given to only select group of Premier suppliers for excellent service.
Premier is a hospital-owned performance improvement alliance of 2,600 hospitals and 84,000 other care sites. It contracts with more than 800 suppliers, including Mission Foodservice.
“As providers continue efforts to operate in a high quality, cost-effective environment, Mission Foodservice has truly been supporting Premier alliance members,” says Premier COO Mike Alkire. “We’re proud to recognize them as a top performing organization.”
