Castleview Hospital was recently named one of the top 20 rural and community hospitals in the country.
The National Rural Health Association (NRHA) has announced the Top 20 rural and community hospitals in the country based on an evaluation by the Chartis Center for Rural Health. The hospitals are identified using the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX, the most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. These hospitals will be recognized on May 18 during NRHA’s Rural Hospital Innovation Summit in San Diego, Calif.
The determining factors for the top 20 rural and community hospitals are based on eight indices: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charge and finance.
“Castleview Hospital is proud of the efforts of its physicians and staff who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation. We are honored to serve the community with an unwavering commitment to high-quality, safe patient care,” said Greg Cook, CEO at Castleview Hospital. “Our recognition as a top health care provider means our community can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the future.”
