MCH in U.S. top 100 for critical access
Monadnock Community Hospital was named in the top 100 in iVantage Health Analytics latest rankings of the top performing critical access hospitals. Organizations recognized by this award are the nation’s best rural safety-net institutions.
The Hospital Strength Index compares over 4,400 U.S. general acute-care hospitals, including the more than 1,300 rural and critical access hospitals, across a continuum of financial, value-based and market-driven performance indicators.
Findings of the iVantage Health Analytics study on the nation’s critical access hospitals shed new, multidimensional light on the characteristics of the top 100 performing critical access hospitals. The 2013 “Benchmark Performance for Critical Access Hospitals” study is a trending study of the rural hospital industry.
“Now more than ever, small and rural hospitals play a critical role in meeting the health care needs of their local communities with efficiency and excellence. The Hospital Strength Index reflects the multiple challenges of running a hospital such as MCH, when compared against standards of excellence which meet the industry’s consensus,” said Peter Gosline, president and CEO of MCH.
