  5. Rawlins County Health Center Named a 2018 Top 100 Critical Access Hospital

    Rawlins County Health Center in Atwood, Kansas was recently named one of the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in the United States by The Chartis Center for Rural Health.

     

    “This recognition represents our team commitment to serving our community while changing to meet the dynamic demands of operating a critical access hospital in the 21st century,” said Sharon K Cox, Rawlins County Health Center CEO.  “We are fortunate to have a visionary Board of Trustees willing to embrace the future. This is the second time Rawlins County Health Center received this recognition, that last time being in 2015.”

     

    Rawlins County Health Center scored in the top 100 of Critical Access Hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®. The INDEX is the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural provider performance 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 can be found at www.ivantageindex.com/top-performing-hospitals.

     

    The Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals play a key role in providing a safety net to communities across America – and the INDEX measures these facilities across eight pillars of hospital strength: Inpatient Share Ranking, Outpatient Share Ranking, Cost, Charge, Quality, Outcomes, Patient Perspective, and Financial Stability.

     

    “The Hospital Strength INDEX provides a true benchmark for helping rural providers to better understand performance levels and identify areas of improvement. When we look across the spectrum of rural-relevant INDEX indicators, the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals are establishing a new standard for how to deliver higher quality care to their communities despite an unpredictable healthcare environment,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader of The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
