PHH receives national recognition, performance

Posted: Friday, November 18, 2016

Leaders at Parkview Huntington Hospital today announced the hospital has been recognized by iVantage Health Analytics and the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) for overall excellence in quality, outcomes, patient satisfaction and financial strength, reflecting top-quartile performance among all rural acute-care hospitals in the nation.

“We take great pride in our hospital team,” said Juli Johnson, president, Parkview Huntington Hospital. “Our co-workers are providing the compassionate care, demonstrating the world-class teamwork and providing the committed leadership that has resulted in this recognition. Their dedication and consistent excellence uphold Parkview’s mission to improve health and inspire well-being in our community.”

The rankings have been determined by the Hospital Strength INDEX®, the industry’s 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,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader of the Chartis Center for Rural Health. “It showcases their commitment to continuous performance analysis and improvement. On this occasion of National Rural Health Day, it’s an honor to celebrate their achievement as they continue to serve their communities despite the many market, regulatory and financial pressures they face.”
