Top 20 Rural and Community Hospital

Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center in Jasper, Indiana, was again named one of the top 20 rural and community hospitals in the country. Memorial Hospital was the only hospital in Indiana to receive this year’s recognition.

The National Rural Health Association (NRHA) has announced the 20 highest-ranked prospective payment system hospitals in the country based on an evaluation by the Chartis Center for Rural Health. The hospitals are identified using the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX, the most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural PPS hospital performance. These hospitals will be recognized May 9 during NRHA’s Annual Rural Health Conference in New Orleans.

The determining factors for the top 20 rural and community hospitals are based on eight indices: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charge, and finance.

“Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center is proud of the efforts of its physicians and caregivers who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation,” said E. Kyle Bennett, President and CEO of Memorial Hospital. “Our recognition as a top health care provider means our community can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the future.”
