Foundation and 6SigmaTek honors “Green Belt” graduates

The DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) Foundation presented 27 graduates with Lean Six Sigma Green Belts on August 27 at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas.

In all, 10 teams participated in the problem-solving exercises in an event co-hosted by 6SigmaTek.

Attendees were made up of hospital employees from across North Texas, with Methodist Mansfield Medical Center winning the “Fire Starter” Award for their innovative patient safety project.

For the past three years, the DFWHC Foundation has been hosting Lean Six Sigma classes to promote hospital patient safety. Sponsored by the Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN), the certification program provides insight into the techniques of improvement methodologies.

The training includes introductions to process management and teamwork while enabling individuals to achieve objectives. Participants gather data and work together in problem solving exercises.
