Mercy Hospital Healdton received national recognition this week by iVantage Health Analytics and the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) for being in the top 25 percent of acute care hospitals nationwide for overall excellence in financial strength.
“We are truly honored to be recognized as a top hospital from iVantage Health Analytics and NOSORH,” said Jeremy Jones, administrator of Mercy Hospital Healdton. “It is our mission to deliver compassionate care and excellent service to our patients every day, while also controlling our costs. This achievement highlights that hard work and our strong commitment to delivering safe, quality care.”
Using public data sources, the recognition is based on the Hospital Strength INDEX™, which is a comprehensive and objective assessment of hospital performance of more than 4,000 acute care hospitals, including more than 1,300 rural and critical access hospitals.
The overall ranking through the Hospital Strength INDEX™ is based on public data sources and is broken into nine categories, which include cost, charge, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, financial strength, population risks, inpatient share and outpatient share.
“These top quartile performers should take great pride in this recognition,” said Michael Topchik, senior vice president of iVantage Health Analytics. “It showcases their commitment to continuous performance analysis and improvement. It’s an honor to celebrate their achievement as they continue to serve their communities despite the many market, regulatory and financial pressures they face.”
