MHP Major Hospital Recognized as a 2019 Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital in the U.S.

The Chartis Center for Rural Health Releases Top 100 List

(February 12, 2019) Shelbyville, IN --- MHP Major Hospital in Shelbyville, Indiana has been named one of the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals in the United States by The Chartis Center for Rural Health for the third year in a row. Regarded as one of the industry’s most significant designations of performance excellence, the annual Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals award is based upon the results of the Hospital Strength INDEX® from iVantage Health Analytics.

“We’re honored to receive this recognition for the third consecutive year,” said Major Health Partners President and CEO, Jack Horner. “Our staff works very hard to deliver the best care possible to our patients. This award is factored on excellence in managing risk, securing better outcomes, increasing patient satisfaction, operating at a lower cost than our peers and achieving higher quality. We focus on these things every day and I’m proud of our organization. With the adaptation of a more preventative care model, I see these components of care becoming even more defined at MHP.”

Hospitals recognized as a Top 100 facility scored in the top 100 among all rural and community hospitals nationally. Now in its ninth year, the INDEX leverages 50 rural-relevant indicators across eight pillars of hospital strength (i.e. Inpatient Market Share, Outpatient Market Chare, Cost, Charge, Quality, Outcomes, Patient Perspective and Financial Stability) to determine an overall score for each hospital. Each of the INDEX’s 50 indicators is culled from publicly-available data sources.

“In an era of increased complexity and uncertainty, Top 100 hospitals have established themselves as a bellwether for rural provider performance,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader of The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “Top 100 status is a real indicator of how proactive these hospitals are when it comes to pushing for performance improvement in areas such as quality, outcomes, patient safety, market share and finance.”
