When we receive recognitions such as this, I'm most proud that our community has the opportunity to see how others in healthcare view the quality and service we provide at RHI
Brentwood, TN (PRWEB) July 25, 2010
Quorum Health Resources hospital client Rutherford Hospital Inc. has been recognized by Becker's Hospital Review as a Top 20 U.S. Community Hospital (325 or fewer beds). According to Becker's, a healthcare business and legal information publication, each hospital included on the list was selected using scores in a number of publicly-available indicators, including patient safety, outcomes and satisfaction, and by rankings on industry lists, including hospital rankings by Thomson Reuters, U.S. News & World Report and HealthGrades.
Rutherford Hospital Inc., a QHR management client since 1983, is a 143-bed acute-care hospital located in Rutherfordton, North Carolina. In addition to being named a Top 20 U.S. Community Hospital, the hospital was also recently named to Thomson Reuters' list of 100 Top Hospitals and to Cleverley & Associates' list of 100 Top Hospitals based on the value they provide to their communities. Rutherford Hospital also received HealthGrades' Gastrointestinal Surgery Excellence Award in 2009. The hospital was the only hospital in North or South Carolina to receive the Top 20 distinction from Becker's.
"Rutherford Hospital Inc. is to be commended for its ongoing commitment to patient safety, patient satisfaction and quality outcomes. The hospital's board, leadership team, staff and physicians are clearly determined to lead by example, and QHR applauds the well-earned success they're enjoying," said QHR President and CEO James L. Horrar.
"When we receive recognitions such as this, I'm most proud that our community has the opportunity to see how others in healthcare view the quality and service we provide at RHI," said David Bixler, Rutherford Hospital CEO. "We've shown consistently over the last several years that our results are among the best in the nation. Thomson Reuters, Cleverley & Associates, and Becker's are all respected national organizations. To have them all validate the hard work our physicians, staff and board put in is very satisfying."
