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.
