Major Health Partners today announced it has been named a 2021 Top 100
Rural & Community Hospitals in the United States by
The Chartis Center for Rural Health. Regarded as one of the industry’s most significant designations
of performance excellence, the annual Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals
award is determined by the results of iVantage Health Analytics’
Hospital Strength INDEX®.
“MHP is proud of the efforts of its physicians and staff who have
contributed to our hospital achieving this designation,” says Major
Health Partners President and CEO, Jack Horner. “Our recognition
as a top health care provider means our community can count on us to deliver
the services they need now and in the future.”
This is the fifth consecutive year MHP has received the Top 100 designation
and is one of only five hospitals in Indiana to be selected.
“The Top 100 program continues to illuminate strategies and innovation
for delivering higher quality care and better outcomes within rural communities,”
said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
“We are delighted to be able to spotlight the efforts of these facilities
through the INDEX framework.”
Over the course of the last 11 years, the INDEX has grown to become the
industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural
hospital performance. Based entirely on public data and utilizing 36 independent
indicators, the INDEX assesses rural hospitals across eight pillars of
performance, including market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective,
cost, charge, and financial efficiency. The INDEX framework is widely
used across the nation by independent rural hospitals, health systems
with rural footprints and state offices of rural health, which provide
access to INDEX analytics through grant-funded initiatives.
