MCH Named in Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in U.S.

healthstrong-hospital-top-100-critical-access-hospitalPeterborough – iVantage Health Analytics has released its latest rankings of the top performing Critical Access Hospitals as determined by the company’s Hospital Strength Index™. Monadnock Community Hospital was named in the top 100. Organizations recognized by this award are the nation’s best rural safety-net institutions. The Hospital Strength Index compares over 4,400 U.S. general acute-care hospitals (including the more than 1300 rural and critical access hospitals) across a continuum of financial, value-based and market-driven performance indicators.

Findings of the iVantage Health Analytics study on the nation’s Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) shed new, multi-dimensional light on the characteristics of the Top 100 performing CAHs. The 2013 “Benchmark Performance for Critical Access Hospitals” study is a trending study of the rural hospital industry.

“Now more than ever, small and rural hospitals play a critical role in meeting the health care needs of their local communities with efficiency and excellence. The Hospital Strength Index reflects the multiple challenges of running a hospital such as MCH when compared against standards of excellence which meet the industry’s consensus,” said Peter Gosline, President and CEO of MCH.
