Barnesville Hospital today announced it has been recognized by iVantage Health Analytics and the National Organization of State Office of Rural Health (NOSORH) for overall excellence in Quality and Outcomes, reflecting top quartile performance among all rural acute care hospitals in the nation.
Barnesville Hospital wants to thank NOSORH, iVantage Health Analytics for recognizing our Hospital for Quality and Outcomes, said David Phillips, CEO, Barnesville Hospital. Our Hospital is committed to providing quality health care to the communities we serve. This award is made possible by our dedicated staff and our physicians who take pride in their job and continually go the extra mile for our patients.
The rankings have been determined by the Hospital Strength INDEX, the industrys most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. In partnership with NOSORH, iVantage Health Analytics has developed a data-driven program designed to identify excellence across a broad spectrum of indicators relevant to hospital performance and patient care. The Hospital Strength INDEX captures performance metrics for all rural and Critical Access Hospitals. Leveraging data from public data sources, INDEX aggregates data from 66 individual metrics into three major categories and nine pillars to derive a single strength overall rating for each facility.
These top quartile performers should take great pride in this recognition. It showcases their commitment to continuous performance analysis and improvement. On this occasion of National Rural Health Day, its an honor to celebrate their achievement as they continue to serve their communities despite the many market, regulatory and financial pressures they face. said Michael Topchik, National Leader of the Chartis Center for Rural Health.
