Avera hospitals named to the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals list include:

“Top quality health care is important no matter where you live – whether in an urban or rural setting. Even while COVID-19 issues continued to challenge our teams system-wide, Avera leaders and staff in our community and critical access hospitals put patients, families and communities first with high quality care and excellent service,” said Bob Sutton, Avera President & CEO. “The importance of rural hospitals is something no one overlooks. We’re proud of the professionalism and compassion these teams demonstrate, each and every day.”

Awarded honorees are determined by the results of iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®. To determine the 2022 list, the Chartis Center used the Hospital Strength Index, which assesses performance in eight areas: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charge and financial efficiency.

Hospitals recognized as a Top 100 facility had one of the 100 highest overall scores among all rural and community and critical access hospitals nationally.
