Continuing the Legacy of Award Wining Health Care

Continuing the Legacy of Award Wining Health Care

Memorial Health Care Systems in Seward, Nebraska was recently named one of the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in the United States by The Chartis Center for Rural Health.

“Receiving this award for the fourth year in a row validates Memorial Hospital’s dedication to the communities of Seward County and the daily commitment employees make to providing the best healthcare possible to the patients we serve,” said Roger Reamer, Chief Executive Officer at Memorial Health Care Systems.

Memorial Hospital scored in the top 100 of Critical Access Hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®. The INDEX is the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural provider performance and its results are the basis for many of rural healthcare’s most prominent awards, advocacy efforts and legislative initiatives. The list of the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals can be found at www.ivantageindex.com/top-performing-hospitals.

The Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals play a key role in providing a safety net to communities across America – and the INDEX measures these facilities across eight pillars of hospital strength: Inpatient Share Ranking, Outpatient Share Ranking, Cost, Charge, Quality, Outcomes, Patient Perspective, and Financial Stability.

“The Hospital Strength INDEX provides a true benchmark for helping rural providers to better understand performance levels and identify areas of improvement. When we look across the spectrum of rural-relevant INDEX indicators, the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals are establishing a new standard for how to deliver higher quality care to their communities despite an unpredictable healthcare environment,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader of The Chartis Center for Rural Health.

Memorial Health Care Systems opened its doors in September of 1950 in memory of World War I & II Servicemen. Today, the health care system has evolved to include Memorial Hospital, three physician clinic sites, ten family physicians and three physician assistants with modern, technically-advanced health care services.  Learn more at www.mhcs.us.
