The Richland Hospital, Inc. recently received word that it had made the list of Top 100 Critical Hospitals in America by iVantage Health Analytics.
In all, 13 Wisconsin hospitals received recognition based on market conditions, clinical and operational performance, and financial and quality outcomes.
Mike Delfs is the CEO at The Richland Hospital, Inc. He said, "It's an incredible honor for our entire team. There are nearly 1300 critical access hospitals (CAH) in the United States. To be rated in the top 100 is a great accomplishment for the staff."
The iVantage study compares facilities of similar size across the nation that have common resources, common challenges, and common communities they serve.
"They look at 50 different measures, comparing you to other critical access hospitals. The patients are similar and the total number of admissions you have to the hospital is similar. It really is an apples to apples comparison," Delfs said.

Diabetes Support Group 2013 – New Time!
Welcome to a new year of Diabetes Support Group activities at The Richland Hospital, Inc. The results of our Diabetes needs assessment last Fall showed significant interest in an earlier start time. Therefore, starting with our January 16th Support Group on the Glycemic Index, we will be meeting at 6 PM versus our previous start time of 7 PM for all of 2013.
Diabetes can seem to be an overwhelming disease because it impacts so many areas of your daily life. It's important to have support from family, friends and from other people with diabetes. By meeting with others who have diabetes, you can feel that the members of the group can understand your experience firsthand. Don't underestimate the importance of peer support, and join us for our free Diabetes Support Group meetings. We meet January through November, the third Wednesday of the month in the hospital's lower level. Remember, bring a friend or family member!
Your Diabetes Education Team includes: Shawn Chitwood, RN, BSN, CDE; Ty Mulholland, RD, CD, CDE; and JoEllen Neefe, RD, CD, CDE.
