BCH recognized for performance leadership

November 14, 2018

Beatrice Community Hospital and Health Center will be recognized as a Leadership Performance Award recipient from The Chartis Center of Rural Health and the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health for overall excellence in the categories of outcomes and patient perspective.

This award recognizes top quartile performance among all rural hospitals in the nation and is announced annually on National Rural Health Day, Nov. 15.

“Quality healthcare outcomes require teamwork between medical staff and providers, patients and community partners,” said Beatrice Community Hospital CEO Rick Haraldson. “I am proud of our staff, and their commitment and role, in providing high quality care for our local communities.”

The Performance Leadership Awards are determined each year using iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX, a assessment of rural hospital performance. Leveraging data from public data sources, the INDEX aggregates data from 50 rural-relevant metrics across eight pillars to derive a single overall percentile rating for all Critical Access Hospitals and Rural & Community Hospitals.

“National Rural Health Day provides the ideal opportunity to spotlight the power of rural and recognize those facilities excelling in quality, patient satisfaction and outcomes,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “We’re thrilled to partner with NOSORH on this program and commend this year’s recipients who are working diligently to provide quality care within their communities.”
