Nemaha County Hospital Named Top 100 Critical Access Hospital

The Chartis Center for Rural Health selects hospitals based on performance

Auburn, Nebr. (February 25, 2020) – Nemaha County Hospital today announced that it has been named a 2020 Top 100 Critical Access Hospital by The Chartis Center for Rural Health.  This annual award honoring rural hospital performance is determined by the results of iVantage Health Analytics; Hospital Strength INDEX®, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2020.

“We are honored to be acknowledged for the care we provide to the rural community,” said Marty Fattig, Chief Executive Officer.  “Our skilled staff works hard to provide high quality care and patient satisfaction while trying to keep operating costs low and I am proud of the outcomes they achieve.”

Based entirely on publicly available data, the INDEX is the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. Utilizing 50 independent indicators, the INDEX assesses performance across eight pillars of performance that span market-, value- and finance-based categories. Hospitals recognized as a Top 100 facility had one of the 100 highest overall scores among all Critical Access Hospitals nationally.

“The Top 100 Critical Access Hospital award program reminds us that rural providers haven’t lost touch with their mission and are committed to delivering better quality, better outcomes and better patient satisfaction. It’s a pleasure to be able to not only recognize this year’s recipients, but our larger group of top 100 alumni as we celebrate 10 years of The Hospital Strength INDEX,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
