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 20 highest-ranked prospective payment system 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 PPS hospital performance. These hospitals will be recognized May 12 during NRHA’s Rural Hospital Innovation Summit in Albuquerque, NM.
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 financial efficiency.
“Castleview Hospital is proud of the efforts of its physicians and healthcare workers who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation,” said Greg Cook, Castleview Hospital CEO. “We are honored to serve this area and provide high-quality care close to home. Our recognition as a top rural and community health care provider means our community can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the future.”
