White River Medical Center and Stone County Medical Center receive Performance Leadership Award

As part of the National Rural Health Day celebration, White River Medical Center announced it has been recognized with a 2022 Performance Leadership Award for excellence in Outcomes. Stone County Medical Center also announced it was recognized with a 2022 Performance Leadership Award for excellence in Outcomes and Patient Perspectives.

Compiled by The Chartis Center for Rural Health, the Performance Leadership Awards honor top quartile performance (e.g., 75th percentile or above) among rural hospitals in Quality, Outcomes, and Patient Perspective.

“We are proud to be recognized in the outcomes and patient perspectives categories,” said Gary Paxson, White River Health president and CEO. “While this is an amazing acknowledgment of our efforts to provide quality healthcare to our patients, we aim to be a performance leader in all three categories in the future. We thank all our employees for all their hard work and dedication to ensure we are the best hospital we possibly can be.”

The Performance Leadership Awards are based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. INDEX data is trusted and relied upon by rural hospitals, health systems with rural footprints, hospital associations, and state offices of rural health across the country to measure and monitor performance across several areas impacting hospital operations and finance.

“Although the last two years have placed unprecedented pressure on the rural health safety net, the dedication to serving the community that we’re so accustomed to seeing from rural hospitals across the country hasn’t wavered,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “Let us celebrate the power of rural on National Rural Health Day and honor the facilities working tirelessly to provide access to high quality healthcare services to their communities.”
