Top 20 Rural Community Hospital
Marion Health in Marion, Indiana was recently named one of the Top 20 Rural 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 using iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength Index. These rural community hospitals were recognized in an awards ceremony during NRHA’s Rural Hospital Innovation Summit May 9 in Atlanta.
The determining factors for the top 20 rural community hospitals were based on eight indices: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, costs, charge, and financial stability.
“I am proud of the effort and dedication of those physicians and members of the Marion Health staff that have placed us in a position to receive this prestigious designation,” stated Stephanie Hilton-Siebert, President/CEO. “Our recognition of being in the top 1% of rural hospitals across the country reflects our ability to deliver a high level of healthcare to our patients and families now and well into the future”.
