iVantage Health Analytics, Inc. named seven Quorum Health Resources’ (Quorum) client hospitals to its “Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals” and three Quorum client hospitals to its “100 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs)” list.
This year’s top rural healthcare performers expand upon research presented in February as part of the “2016 Rural Relevance Study: Vulnerability to Value.” The lists recognize hospitals that play a key role in providing a safety net to communities across America – measuring them across more than 70 different performance metrics, including quality, outcomes, patient perspective, affordability, population risk and efficiency.
The hospitals listed below scored in the top 100 of rural and community hospitals on iVantage’s Hospital Strength INDEX®.
Top 100 Rural and Community Hospitals:
- Fort Madison Community Hospital (Fort Madison, IA)
- Jackson Hospital (Marianna, FL)
- Montrose Memorial Hospital (Montrose, CO)
- Newberry County Memorial Hospital (Newberry, SC)

“We are honored to be named to iVantage’s list of leading rural and community hospitals,” said Pat Bira, CEO of Fort Madison Community Hospital. “We are especially proud of the efforts of our physicians and staff who have contributed to our achieving this designation.”
The hospitals listed below scored in the top 100 of Critical Access Hospitals on iVantage’s Hospital Strength INDEX®.
Top 100 CAHs:
- Central Montana Medical Center (Lewiston, MT)
- Greeley County Health Services (Tribune, KS)
- Steele Memorial Medical Center (Salmon, ID)
"We are very proud that several of our client hospitals have been distinguished among iVantage’s top rural healthcare performers,” said Quorum Health Resources President and CEO Mickey Bilbrey. "This recognition is a testament to these organizations’ commitment to quality and outcomes, patient and safety satisfaction. Particularly impressive, is achieving such exemplary results in today’s difficult healthcare environment.”
“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.
