Four Parkview hospitals recognized by The Chartis Center for outstanding rural healthcare

FORT WAYNE, IND. – NOV. 16, 2023 – Four Parkview community hospitals have been recognized with 2023 Performance Leadership Awards from The Chartis Center for Rural Health.

Parkview LaGrange Hospital, Parkview Noble Hospital, Parkview DeKalb Hospital and Parkview Bryan Hospital (which was recognized under its former name of Community Hospitals and Wellness Centers – Bryan Hospital) all were honored on this year’s list from The Chartis Center.

The Chartis Center annually recognizes rural hospitals that rank within the top 25% nationally in categories including quality, outcomes and/or patient perspective. Chartis released its annual rankings today in celebration of National Rural Health Day.

“Parkview serves patients in more than 20 rural counties in northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio, so providing high-quality care via our community hospitals and physician offices will always be a priority,” said Dr. Greg Johnson, regional market president, Parkview Health. “Congratulations to our four facilities recognized by The Chartis Center this year.”

This year, Parkview LaGrange Hospital received recognition in both the quality and outcomes categories, while Parkview Noble Hospital, Parkview DeKalb Hospital and Parkview Bryan Hospital were recognized in the outcomes category.

It’s the second consecutive year Parkview LaGrange, Parkview Noble and Parkview Bryan have been honored by Chartis, while Parkview DeKalb received its first Performance Leadership Award since joining Parkview in 2019.

“Rural hospitals may be smaller, but size doesn’t impact our ability to deliver high-quality care,” said Jordi Disler, market president, Parkview Health North. “Our hospitals in Noble and LaGrange counties are consistently recognized as top-performing facilities and we’re proud to see both recognized by The Chartis Center in back-to-back years. These awards are the result of the tireless work of dedicated and skilled co-workers who provide the best care and an excellent experience to our patients every day.”

“Parkview DeKalb Hospital and Parkview Bryan Hospital are proud to join our other great Parkview rural hospitals in being recognized as an industry top performer by The Chartis Center,” said Tasha Eicher, market president, Parkview Health Northeast Indiana/Northwest Ohio. “Every time a patient walks through our doors, we do everything we can to ensure that person and their family receive the best care and an excellent experience. The great outcomes our patients receive directly result from the hard work, skill and compassion our co-workers bring to the hospital every day.” 

The Performance Leadership Awards are based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX®, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. INDEX data is relied upon by rural hospitals, health systems with rural footprints, hospital associations and state offices of rural health around the country to measure and monitor performance across several areas impacting hospital operations and finance.
