100 TOP RURAL AND COMMUNITY HOSPITALS

The Chartis Center for Rural Health recently released its annual list of the top 100 rural and community hospitals in the U.S.

To determine its rankings, the Chartis Center uses the Hospital Strength Index, which is considered a comprehensive yet straightforward method for comparing hospital performance. Its scoring model assesses performance in eight areas: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charge, and financial efficiency.
