The Kansas Department of Commerce has named 27 Regional Business Excellence Award winners and 104 Merit Award winners as part of Business Appreciation Month, the Department’s annual celebration of Kansas businesses and their contributions to their communities and the state economy.

Each of the 131 businesses was nominated in one of four categories: Manufacturing/Distribution, Service, Retail and Hospital/Non-Profit. Five of the 27 Regional Business Excellence Award winners have been named Finalists for the Governor’s Award of Excellence—the top award given to a business by the State—which will be announced June 29 at the Kansas Cavalry Encampment in El Dorado. The five finalists are:

Community HealthCare System (Onaga and five other locations)
Rooks County Health Center (Plainville)
Mid Kansas Coop Association (Moundridge)
AuBurn Pharmacy Inc. (Garnett and multiple other locations)

“I want to congratulate all the businesses recognized this year,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. “They represent the very best of their communities and Kansas. These awards are a way we can recognize their numerous contributions to keeping the state strong.”
