LOGANSPORT — Logansport Memorial Hospital was recently named one of the Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals in the country.
The National Rural Health Association has announced the 20 highest-ranked prospective payment system hospitals in the country based on an evaluation by the Chartis Center for Rural Health, using the iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength Index.
Earlier this year, Logansport Memorial learned that it was a four-time recipient of the Top 100 award from iVantage Health Analytics. This additional evaluation and analysis led to Logansport Memorial being named to the Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals out of the Top 100 originally identified.
Logansport Memorial and other Top 20 recipients were recently recognized in an awards ceremony during the NHRA’s Rural Hospital Innovation Summit on May 9 in Atlanta, Ga.
The determining factors for the top 20 rural community hospitals were based on eight indices: inpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, costs, charge, and financial stability.
“I cannot fully describe how proud I am of the efforts of our physicians and staff who have contributed to achieving this distinction,” said Perry Gay, president and CEO of Logansport Memorial Hospital. “To be among this group of Top 20 hospitals means that our collaborative efforts to deliver care and achieve positive clinical outcomes has put Logansport Memorial Hospital in the top 1 percent of rural hospitals across the country. The caliber and quality of care that you can receive right here at home has been recognized as one of the very best, and it does not happen without a team of hardworking staff, innovative leadership, and dedicated providers who are fully committed to delivering it for the patients and families we serve.
“Our recognition as a Top 20 Rural Community Hospital means that you can count on us as your trusted provider to deliver the services you need now and in the future,” he continued. “I am thrilled to celebrate this prestigious moment with our entire hospital team.”
