Kimball Health Services has been ranked among the top 100 critical access hospitals in the nation.
The ranking is compiled by the Chartis Center for Rural Health and based upon the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance Index, the industry standard for assessing and benchmarking rural and critical access hospital performance. Hospitals recognized as a top 100 facility had one of the 100 highest overall scores among 1,300 critical access hospitals nationally. Kimball Health Services was ranked in the 93rd percentile nationwide, receiving its highest marks in the areas of financial stability, outpatient market share and charges for services.
The new ranking demonstrates the hospital’s long standing commitment to providing exceptional and affordable healthcare to the community, said Ken Hunter, CEO at Kimball Health Services.
“We are incredibly honored to be named one of the top rural hospitals in the country,” Hunter said. “Earning this distinction is a testament to the incredible care provided by the KHS team. Their dedication is truly unwavering and to have it recognized on a national level is remarkable. It demonstrates KHS’s steadfast commitment to providing the best healthcare possible to our community while maintaining an efficient, effective and innovative organization.”
Based entirely on publicly available data, the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance Index uses 36 independent indicators and assesses performance across eight pillars of performance that span market, value and finance-based categories. The data and is updated three times per year.
“This program helps us identify and implement strategies for delivering higher quality care and better outcomes for our patients,” said Laura Bateman, director of Quality and Staff Development at KHS. “Our patients and community are our top priority, and we are committed to our mission of providing patient-centered healthcare with excellence in quality, accessibility and patient experience.”
The index is the foundation for many of rural healthcare’s most prominent awards such as the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals and is used by organizations such as the National Rural Health Association (NRHA) in support of its advocacy and legislative initiatives.
