Top 20 Critical Access Hospital

Top 20 Critical Access Hospital

This hospital has been named one of the Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) for Best Practices in quality in the country. It scored best among critical access hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength Index™ for Best Practices in Quality. The rankings were recently announced by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA). The determining factors for the Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) were based on 9 indices of strength including inpatient market share, outpatient market share, population risk, cost, charge, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, and financial stability.


Women’s Choice Award for Emergency Care

Women’s Choice Award for Emergency Care

Hospitals earn the Emergency Care Award if they consistently rank in the top 25 percent of the 3,600 hospitals reporting on their emergency department’s performance to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The seven measures CMS publicly reports are weighted according to the priorities of women we surveyed, and determine if a hospital can earn the award if they fall outside the 25th percentile for one or more of the seven measures. We also limit the award to those hospitals with a solid HCAHPS recommendation rating.


Accreditations and Certifications


CAP Laboratory Accreditation

CAP Laboratory Accreditation

The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program is an internationally recognized program and the only one of its kind that utilizes teams of practicing laboratory professionals as inspectors. Designed to go well beyond regulatory compliance, the program helps laboratories achieve the highest standards of excellence to positively impact patient care. The program is based on rigorous accreditation standards that are translated into detailed and focused checklist requirements. The checklists, which provide a quality practice blueprint for laboratories to follow, are used by the inspection teams as a guide to assess the overall management and operation of the laboratory.


Computed Tomography Accreditation

Computed Tomography Accreditation

The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.
