Marion General Hospital has been named a 2020 Top 100 Rural & Community
Hospital in the United States by The Chartis Center for Rural Health,
earning the designation for the fourth consecutive year. This annual award
honoring rural hospital performance is determined by the results of iVantage
Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®.
“Our medical staff and healthcare team strive to provide exceptional
care for our patients each day,” commented Stephanie Hilton-Siebert,
President and CEO. “I’m pleased that the skill and compassion
our medical staff, employees, contracted staff and volunteers consistently
offer to our patients is being recognized for the fourth consecutive year.”
Based entirely on publicly available data, the INDEX is the industry’s
most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance.
Utilizing 50 independent indicators, the INDEX assesses performance across
eight pillars of performance that span market, value and finance-based
categories. Hospitals recognized as a Top 100 facility had one of the
100 highest overall scores among all Rural & Community Hospitals nationally.
“The Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital award program reminds
us that rural providers haven’t lost touch with their mission and
are committed to delivering better quality, better outcomes and better
patient satisfaction. It’s a pleasure to be able to not only recognize
this year’s recipients, but our larger group of top 100 alumni as
we celebrate 10 years of The Hospital Strength INDEX,” said Michael
Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
