Hospital Receives National Recognition for Overall Excellence in Quality and Financial Strength

November 18, 2015

McCook, NE, November 18, 2015 – Community Hospital today announced it has been recognized by iVantage Health Analytics and the National Organization of State Office of Rural Health (NOSORH) for overall excellence in Quality and Financial Strength, reflecting top quartile performance among all acute care hospitals in the nation.

“In our continual journey to excellence we strive to exceed the expectations of all the patients and families we serve,” said Jim Ulrich, Community Hospital President & CEO. “We are extremely proud of our progress on this journey and appreciate the recognition for overall excellence in the two areas of Quality and Financial Strength. This high level of quality is a core component in our mission of Regional Healthcare Excellence. Our financial strength enhances our ability to ensure this excellent level of quality care for years to come,” he said.

The rankings have been designated by the Hospital Strength INDEX™, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of hospital performance. In partnership with NOSORH, iVantage Health Analytics has developed a data-driven program designed to identify excellence across a broad spectrum of indicators relevant to hospital performance and patient care. The Hospital Strength INDEX™ captures performance metrics for more than 4,000 acute care hospitals, including over 1,300 rural and Critical Access Hospitals. Leveraging data from public data sources, INDEX aggregates data from 66 individual metrics into three major categories and nine pillars to derive a single strength overall rating for each facility.

“These top quartile performers should take great pride in this recognition. It showcases their commitment to continuous performance analysis and improvement. On this occasion of National Rural Health Day, it’s an honor to celebrate their achievement as they continue to serve their communities despite the many market, regulatory and financial pressures they face.” said Michael Topchik, senior vice president of iVantage Health Analytics.
