National Recognition for Performance

Clay County Medical Center today announced it has been recognized by iVantage Health Analytics and the National Organization of State Office of Rural Health (NOSORH) for overall excellence in Outcomes, reflecting top quartile performance among all acute care hospitals in the nation.

“It is an honor that Clay County Medical Center has been recognized as a national leader for the exceptional care and patient outcomes we provide,” Austin M. Gillard, Clay County Medical Center’s CEO said. He continued, “Quality and Patient care is our main objective. The collaboration between patients, staff, and family is one of a kind and a critical piece in our success. I believe those relationships, along with our irreplaceable patient care staff, is what has led to our excellence in Quality and Outcomes.”

The rankings have been designated by the Hospital Strength INDEX™, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of hospital performance. In partnership with NOSORH, iVantage Health Analytics has developed a data-driven program designed to identify excellence across a broad spectrum of indicators relevant to hospital performance and patient care. The Hospital Strength INDEX™ captures performance metrics for more than 4,000 acute care hospitals, including over 1,300 rural and Critical Access Hospitals. Leveraging data from public data sources, INDEX aggregates data from 66 individual metrics into three major categories and 9 pillars to derive a single strength overall rating for each facility.

“These top quartile performers should take great pride in this recognition. It showcases their commitment to continuous performance analysis and improvement. On this occasion of National Rural Health Day, it’s an honor to celebrate their achievement as they continue to serve their communities despite the many market, regulatory and financial pressures they face.” said Michael Topchik, senior vice president of iVantage Health Analytics.
