PHH named Top Rural & Community Hospitals

Posted: Friday, February 22, 2019

Parkview Huntington Hospital leaders announced that the hospital has been named one of the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals in the United States by The Chartis Center for Rural Health. Regarded as one of the industry’s most significant designations of performance excellence, the annual Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals award is based on the results of the Hospital Strength INDEX® from iVantage Health Analytics.

“It is gratifying to receive this recognition, not only of our consistently strong operational performance, but also of the importance of our pivotal role as a community hospital providing world-class care close to home for area residents,” said Juli Johnson, president, Parkview Huntington Hospital. “The opening of our new Center for Wound Healing and the expansion of our Rehab and Wellness Center are two strong examples of the way we continually examine community needs and adapt to provide additional patient-centered options. Being designated a Top 100 hospital is a testament to the commitment and dedication of our team members.”

Each hospital recognized as a Top 100 facility scored in the top 100 among all rural and community hospitals across the nation. Now in its ninth year, the INDEX determines an overall score by taking into consideration 50 indicators across eight pillars of hospital strength: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, cost, charge, quality, outcomes, patient perspective and financial stability. Each of the INDEX’s 50 indicators relevant to rural markets is culled from publicly available data sources.

“In an era of increased complexity and uncertainty, Top 100 hospitals have established themselves as a bellwether for rural provider performance,” said Michael Topchik, national leader of The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “Top 100 status is a real indicator of how proactive these hospitals are when it comes to pushing for performance improvement in areas such as quality, outcomes, patient safety, market share and finance.”
