For the second consecutive year, Clay County Medical Center (CCMC) has been named one of the Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) in America. The Top 20 “winners” are those hospitals who have achieved success in overall hospital performance in eight pillars: 1 - Inpatient Market Share, 2 - Outpatient Market Share, 3 - Quality, 4 - Outcomes, 5 - Patient Perspective, 6 - Cost, 7 - Charge, and 8 - Financial Efficiency. CCMC was selected from The Chartis Center for Rural Health’s 2021 Top 100 CAH list, which was released earlier this year.
“CCMC is proud to receive this award for the second consecutive year. The unwavering commitment of our team members has clearly contributed to CCMC achieving this designation,” said Austin Gillard, CEO of CCMC. “We look forward to our continued growth and expansion as a Top 20 CAH in America. The communities we serve in the region can count on us to deliver high quality healthcare services now, and in the future.”
The National Rural Health Association names the Top 20 from a larger set of Top 100 CAHs, which is evaluated and produced by The Chartis Center for Rural Health. Both the Top 20 and Top 100 performing CAHs are identified through iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®, the most comprehensive and objective assessments of hospital performance.
