Three Avera Facilities Named Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals

 

Avera St. Mary’s, Avera Queen of Peace and Avera St. Luke’s Hospitals were recently named to the Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals in the country.

The Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals scored best among Prospective Payment System hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength Index™. The rankings were announced by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA).

The Top 20 Rural Community Hospital winners are those hospitals that have achieved success in overall performance based on a composite rating from eight indices of strength: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, costs, charges and financial stability. This group was selected from iVantage’s Top 100 Rural Community Hospital list, released earlier this year.

The National Rural Health Association is a nonprofit organization working to improve the health and wellbeing of rural Americans and providing leadership on rural health issues through advocacy, communications, education and research. You can learn more online at RuralHealthWeb.org.

The iVantage Health Analytics, Inc™ company is a privately held health care business intelligence and technology entity recognized as a leading provider of information products serving an expansive health care industry. Information about its work is online at iVantageHealth.com.
