Fremont Health Medical Center Named a 2018 Top 100 Community Hospital
FREMONT, NE – April 26, 2018: Fremont Health Medical Center in Fremont, Nebraska, was recently named one of the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals in the United States by The Chartis Center for Rural Health. This is the second consecutive year Fremont Health has been included on the list.
“We are incredibly proud that we have been selected as one of the Top 100 Rural and Community Hospitals in the country,” said Patrick Booth, Fremont Health President and Chief Executive Officer. “Healthcare is an industry that is constantly evolving and very complex, and we work hard to continually improve, achieve higher quality, secure better outcomes, focus on safety and increase patient satisfaction. This achievement is a reflection of the commitment our caregivers have to the community and the patients we serve.”
Fremont Health Medical Center scored in the top 100 of rural and community hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®. The INDEX is the industry’s most comprehensive rating of rural provider performance and its results are the basis for many of rural healthcare’s most prominent awards, advocacy efforts and legislative initiatives. The list of the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals can be found at www. ivantageindex.com/top-performing-hospitals.
The Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals play a key role in providing a safety net to communities across America – and the INDEX measures these facilities across eight pillars of hospital strength: Inpatient Share Ranking, Outpatient Share Ranking, Cost, Charge, Quality, Outcomes, Patient Perspectives, and Financial Stability.
“The Hospital Strength INDEX provides a true benchmark for helping rural providers to better understand performance levels and identify areas of improvement. When we look across the spectrum of rural-relevant INDEX indicators, the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals are establishing a new standard for how to deliver higher quality care to their communities despite an unpredictable healthcare environment,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader of The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
