We are Continuing the Legacy of Award-Winning Health Care

Memorial Hospital has been recognized for the 7th year in a row by The Chartis Center for Rural Health as a 2021 Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital in the United States. Regarded as one of the industry’s most significant designations of performance excellence, the annual Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals award is based upon the results of the Hospital Strength INDEX® from iVantage Health Analytics. 

Memorial Hospital’s, Roger Reamer, CEO commended the team for this accomplishment. “It is a great honor to be recognized for the 7th year in a row as a leader in health care through the Chartis Center for Rural Health. With over 1,320 critical access hospitals in the US, we take pride in this recognition. But more so, we take pride in the compassion and quality care our team members deliver to our patients each day,” Reamer stated.

Over the course of the last 11 years, the INDEX has grown to become the industry's most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. Based entirely on public data and utilizing 36 independent indicators, the INDEX assesses rural hospitals across eight pillars of performance, including market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charge and financial efficiency. the INDEX framework is widely used across the nations by independent rural hospitals, health systems with rural footprints and state offices of rural health, which provide access to INDEX analytics through grant-funded initiatives.   

“The Top 100 program continues to illuminate strategies and innovation for delivering higher quality care and better outcomes within rural communities," said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health. "We are delighted to be able to spotlight the efforts of these facilities through the INDEX framework."
