FALLS CITY – The Community Medical Center in Falls City has been named a Top 100 Critical Access Hospital by an organization that monitors rural health.
“This achievement is very gratifying,” says hospital administrator Ryan Larsen.
CMC scored in the Top 100 of Critical Access Hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX. The index is used by the industry for advocacy efforts, awards and legislative actions.
“Our analysis shows that this group of top performers exhibits a focused concern for their community needs.” said Michael Topchik, national leader of the Chartis Center for Rural Health.
The index measures eight components of hospital service including: Inpatient Share Ranking, Outpatient Share Ranking, Cost, Charge, Quality, Outcomes, Patient Perspectives and Financial Stability.
“While the most important feedback we get is in the lives in our patients and their families, it is nice to have an outside voice tell us we are doing well. I’m very proud of our staff.” says Larsen.
