Estes Park, CO Harmony Foundation announced it has received the 2022 Excellence in Healthcare Award for achieving excellence in employee engagement from Huron, a global professional services firm, at its 20th annual What’s Right in Health Care® conference on August 8-10, 2022. Harmony is recognized for delivering exceptional outcomes and driving innovations which positively impact its people, consumers, or business operations.

“Harmony Foundation continually strives to be the example for the country in creating an environment of success for those seeking recovery,” stated Harmony Foundation CEO Jim Geckler. “At the core of that sucess are the many roles of staff here that serve our mission."

“We congratulate Harmony Foundation on this well-deserved achievement,” said Debbie Ritchie, managing director at Huron. “This recognition is a testament to the innovation and resilience of their teams enabling them to achieve performance excellence throughout the past year.”

Huron’s Excellence in Healthcare Awards are presented annually to a select group of organizations that demonstrate What’s Right in Health Care and achieve exceptional outcomes for patients while driving innovation. To be eligible for an award, an organization must demonstrate outstanding performance and achievement in areas such as patient care, as well as employee and physician engagement. 

The What’s Right in Health Care conference is for healthcare leaders eager to think critically about bringing more innovation to their organization, prioritizing a high-performing and engaged workforce. Over the two-and-a-half days, attendees have the opportunity to connect with peers and find inspiration in their path to organizational improvement and become an ambassador for cultural growth, positive clinical and operational outcomes, and advanced leadership skills. Conference attendees joined in person and virtually to hear inspiring stories and best practices from other high-performing healthcare leaders and staff across the care continuum.

“Harmony Foundation does amazing work for their clients and the community. It’s been my pleasure to see them receive this award for excellence in employee engagement,” said Huron Senior Director Lisa Reich. “Their staff engagement has been measured and shown a dramatic increase as well as sustainability. They work hard to make Harmony a great place for all those that work there.”
