Community Hospital Named as 2017 Top 100 Critical Access Hospital

April 11, 2017

McCook, Nebraska—Community Hospital was recently named one of the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in the United States by iVantage Health Analytics and The Chartis Center for Rural Health.

“To be in the 97th percentile of 2,200 rural facilities across the country is exciting and amazing. It is validation that the difficult work of our staff to continuously improve our processes is working and is worth the effort. We dedicate a lot of time and resources towards improving quality and reducing cost which is what drives improved value for our patients and communities. We are never done though. We have so much more to do to maintain this level of excellence since our peers will not sit still either,” said Troy Bruntz, Community Hospital Interim CEO.

Community Hospital scored in the top 100 of Critical Access Hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®. The INDEX is the industry’s most comprehensive rating of rural providers. It provides the data foundation for the annual Rural Relevance Study and its results are the basis for many of rural healthcare’s most prominent awards, advocacy efforts and legislative initiatives.

The list of the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals and more information about the study can be found at www.iVantageINDEX.com.The Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals play a key role in providing a safety net to communities across America – and the INDEX measures them across eight pillars of hospital strength: Inpatient Share Ranking, Outpatient Share Ranking, Cost, Charge, Quality, Outcomes, Patient Perspectives, and Financial Stability. “It’s more important than ever that rural hospitals proactively understand and address performance in the areas of cost, quality, outcomes and patient perspective.

 iVantage’s INDEX was designed to serve as this industry model,” said Michael Topchik, national leader of the Chartis Center for Rural Health. “Across the spectrum of performance indicators, there are rural providers that are writing the blueprint for success as they transition to value-based healthcare. Our analysis shows that this group of top performers exhibits a focused concern for their community needs.”
