For Immediate Release
PMC – Wayne, NE
Providence Medical Center in Wayne was recently named one of iVantage Health Analytics’ Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) in the United States.
Providence Medical Center is proud of the efforts of our physicians and staff who have contributed to our achieving this designation,” said Jim Frank, CEO.
Providence Medical Center scored in the top 100 of Critical Access Hospitals on iVantage’s Hospital Strength INDEX®. The INDEX is the industry’s most comprehensive rating of rural and Critical Access Hospitals. The results recognize that the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals provide a safety net to communities across rural America – measuring them across more than 70 different performance metrics, including quality, outcomes, patient perspective, affordability, population risk and efficiency.
The list of the top 100 Critical Access Hospitals and more information about the study can be found at www.iVantageINDEX.com.
“Rural healthcare deserves the same performance analysis as all provider performance. It plays a vital role for communities across America, serving more than 60 million people. The services provided in rural America are similar to those needed in any major metropolitan area, yet the volumes and economic resources provide little economies of scale, making for little benefit from scale. These top 100 Critical Access Hospitals exhibit a focused concern for their community benefits and needs, regardless of scale, reimbursement and people’s ability to pay,” said Michael Topchik, senior vice president of iVantage Health Analytics.
Providence Medical Center was built in 1975 and is a 25-bed non-profit hospital that employs over 200 people and remains one of the best small, rural hospitals in northeast Nebraska. Providing state-of-the-art quality healthcare to more than 15,000 area residents in a setting close to home, PMC continues to strive to exceed the expectations of all those residing in the hospital service area.
