In celebration of National Rural Health Day, Redwood Area Hospital was recognized for overall excellence in patient perspective, reflecting top quartile performance among all rural hospitals in the nation.
“The results of this award come directly from our patient’s experiences and satisfaction with their care at Redwood Area Hospital,” explained Bryan Lydick, Redwood Area Hospital CEO.“We have a great staff, medical providers and volunteers that are dedicated to the health and wellbeing of our community. This national recognition confirms their dedication and caring; this is truly their award.”
This performance leadership award was given by The Chartis Center for Rural Health/iVantage Health Analytics and the National Organization of State Office for Rural Health (NOSORH).
The rankings are determined each year using iVantage Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance.
“On this important day, as we celebrate the power of rural, it’s great to recognize these top performers who are excelling in managing risk, achieving higher quality, securing better outcomes, increasing patient satisfaction, or operating at a lower cost than their peers,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader of the Chartis Center for Rural Health. “These leaders serve as a benchmark for other rural facilities as they strive to achieve similar results and provide a blueprint for how to successfully run a hospital and serve their communities amidst today’s uncertainty and mounting pressures.”
