KENDALLVILLE AND HUNTINGTON, IND. – Feb. 20, 2020 – For the second year in a row and third time in recent years, two of Parkview Health’s community hospitals, Parkview Noble Hospital and Parkview Huntington Hospital, have been named in the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals in the United States by The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
This annual award honoring rural hospital performance is determined by the results of iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®.
“I couldn’t be prouder of our hospital’s team of engaged, committed and compassionate leaders, co-workers and physicians,” said Gary Adkins, president, Parkview Noble Hospital. “This is a great tribute that when everyone within a system works together, it makes all of us better.”
“It is such a pleasure to receive this important recognition again,” said Juli Johnson, president, Parkview Huntington Hospital. “Our hospital team members take great pride in providing world-class care for every patient, and Top 100 recognition is a great reinforcement of all their hard work, patient advocacy and teamwork.”
Based on publicly available data, the INDEX is the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. Using 50 independent indicators, the INDEX assesses performance across eight pillars of performance that span market-, value- and finance-based categories. Hospitals recognized as a Top 100 facility had one of the 100 highest overall scores among all Rural & Community Hospitals nationally.
“The Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital award program reminds us that rural providers haven’t lost touch with their mission and are committed to delivering better quality, better outcomes and better patient satisfaction. It’s a pleasure to be able to not only recognize this year’s recipients, but our larger group of top 100 alumni as we celebrate 10 years of The Hospital Strength INDEX,” said Michael Topchik, national leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
