Marion General Hospital Receives National Recognition for Performance Leadership
in Quality, Outcomes and Patient Perspective.
On National Rural Health Day, Marion General Hospital announced it has
been recognized by The Chartis Center of Rural Health and the National
Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) for overall excellence
in Performance Leadership in Quality, Outcomes and Patient Perspective,
reflecting top quartile performance among all rural hospitals in the nation.
“This achievement is very gratifying and validates our daily commitment
to providing the best health care possible to our community, while maintaining
an efficient and effective facility,” said Stephanie Hilton-Siebert,
President and CEO.
The Performance Leadership Awards are determined each year using iVantage
Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment
of rural hospital performance. Leveraging data from public data sources,
the INDEX aggregates data from 50 rural-relevant metrics across eight
pillars to derive a single overall percentile rating for all Critical
Access Hospitals and Rural & Community Hospitals. The Performance
Leadership Awards spotlight top performance in the areas of Quality, Outcomes
and Patient Perspective.
“National Rural Health Day provides the ideal opportunity to spotlight
the power of rural and recognize those facilities excelling in Quality,
Patient Satisfaction and Outcomes,” said Michael Topchik, National
Leader, the Chartis Center for Rural Health. “We’re thrilled
to partner with NOSORH on this program and commend this year’s recipients
who are working diligently to provide quality care within their communities.”
