Franklin County Memorial Hospital named to Top 20
Critical Access Hospital list
Franklin County Memorial Hospital in Franklin, Nebraska was recently named
one of the Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) for QUALITY SERVICE in the country.
Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals, including Franklin County Memorial Hospital, scored best among critical
access hospitals as determined by The Chartis Center for Rural Health for QUALITY. The rankings were recently
announced by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA). An awards ceremony
will be held during NRHA’s Critical Access Hospital Conference in September in
Kansas City, Mo.
The Top 20 Critical Access
Hospital “winners” are those hospitals who have achieved success in the overall
performance based on a composite rating from eight indices of strength: inpatient
market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives,
cost, charge and financial stability. This group was selected from The Chartis Center for Rural
Health’s 2018 Top 100 CAH list, which was released earlier this year.
Those hospitals that have been recognized as Top
20 Critical Access Hospital “best practice recipients” have achieved success
one of two key areas of performance:
Quality index: A rating of
hospital performance based on the percentile rank across the five categories of
Hospital Compare Process of Care measures.
perspective index: A rating of hospital performance based on the percentile rank on
two Hospital Compare HCAHPS measures (“Overall Rating” and “Highly Recommend)”.
COUNTY MEMORIAL HOSPITAL is proud of the efforts
of its physicians and staff who have contributed to our hospital achieving this
designation,” said Theresa Rizzo, CEO.
“Our results as a top QUALITY Hospital and Rural Medical Clinic means our
community can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the
