Mayo Clinic Health System in Waseca named as 2019 Top 100 Critical Access Hospital
Mayo Clinic Health System in Waseca was recently named one of the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in the United States by iVantage Health Analytics and The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
Mayo Clinic Health System in Waseca scored in the top 100 of Critical Access Hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®. The INDEX is the industry’s most comprehensive rating of rural providers. It provides the data foundation for the annual Rural Relevance Study, and its results are the basis for many of rural health care’s most prominent awards, advocacy efforts and legislative initiatives. The list of the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals and more information about the study can be found at www.iVantageINDEX.com.
The Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals play a key role in providing a safety net to communities across America — and the INDEX measures them across eight pillars of hospital strength: Inpatient Share Ranking, Outpatient Share Ranking, Cost, Charge, Quality, Outcomes, Patient Perspectives and Financial Stability.
“From one year to the next, the Top 100 lists are never static, which we see as a strong indicator of how proactive hospitals are when it comes to pushing for performance improvement in key areas, such as quality, outcomes, patient safety, market share and finance,” said Michael Topchik, national leader of the Chartis Center for Rural Health. “We’re delighted to recognize this year’s Top 100 rural providers and showcase their efforts to deliver quality care efficiently and cost-effectively.”
