This annual award honoring rural hospital performance is determined by the results of iVantage Health Analytics' Hospital Strength INDEX®, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2020.

"Being ranked as a top 100 critical access hospital in the nation is truly an honor," said Memorial Community Health's CEO Diane Keller. "I'm proud of our team for the excellent work they do and the comprehensive care they provide. Serving our community is always our top priority, and I believe this honor is a positive reflection of our "Care Matters" culture of care here at MCHI."

Hospitals recognized as a Top 100 facility had one of the 100 highest overall scores among all Critical Access Hospitals nationally. Based entirely on publicly available data, the INDEX is the industry's most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. Utilizing 50 independent indicators, the INDEX assesses performance across eight pillars of performance that span market-, value- and finance-based categories.

"The Top 100 Critical Access Hospital award program reminds us that rural providers haven't lost touch with their mission and are committed to delivering better quality, better outcomes and better patient satisfaction. It's a pleasure to be able to not only recognize this year's recipients, but our larger group of top 100 alumni as we celebrate 10 years of The Hospital Strength INDEX," said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
