Lantern Awards Region Excellence

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. — As part of the Lantern Awards ceremony, the Louisiana Quality Foundation will recognize a Louisiana Performance Excellence Award winner. This year's top winner is St. Elizabeth Physicians of Gonzales.

Louisiana Economic Development honored the 2012 Lantern Award winners this week during a private reception held at the Louisiana Governor's Mansion. Lantern Award winners demonstrate excellence in manufacturing and outstanding service to their communities through the involvement of their businesses and employees.

"Each year, we recognize manufacturers in our state who embody quality in their work processes and commitment to their communities," LED Secretary Stephen Moret said. "Lantern Award winners are focused on improvement, growth and innovation, and their contributions are helping us position Louisiana as the best state for business investment. We salute their accomplishments and are grateful for the career opportunities they're providing the people of our state."

Lantern Award winners are selected by Louisiana's eight Regional Planning and Development Districts, with selection based on the contributions of the manufacturers to their communities, including investments in employment growth and facility expansion.

Each business also must demonstrate sustainability by remaining in operation at least three years prior to the nomination.
