Schneck Medical Center Receives National Recognition for Performance Leadership
November 28, 2017
Schneck Medical Center has been recognized by The Chartis Center for Rural Health/iVantage Health Analytics and the National Organization of State Office of Rural Health (NOSORH) for overall excellence in Quality, Outcomes and Patient Perspectives reflecting top quartile performance among all rural hospitals in the nation.
 
Relative to all rural hospitals nationally, Schneck performs at the 90th percentile in quality, the 99th percentile in outcomes, and the 86th percentile in patient perspectives.
 
“We are honored to have been recognized as a top performer among rural hospitals in the nation. This recognition reaffirms our commitment to providing exceptional healthcare, while maintaining efficient and effective operations,” said Warren Forgey, President/CEO of Schneck. “It is the dedication and compassionate care of all Medical Center staff which has made this distinction possible.”
 
The rankings are determined each year using iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. In partnership with NOSORH, iVantage Health Analytics has developed a data-driven program designed to identify excellence across a broad spectrum of indicators relevant to hospital performance and patient care. The Hospital Strength INDEX captures performance metrics for all rural and Critical Access Hospitals. Leveraging data from public data sources, INDEX aggregates data from more than 50 individual metrics into three major categories and eight pillars to derive a single strength overall rating for each facility.
 
“Schneck Medical Center is a top performer excelling in managing risk, achieving higher quality, securing better outcomes, increasing patient satisfaction, and operating at a lower cost than their peers,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader of the Chartis Center for Rural Health. “Schneck serves as a benchmark for other rural facilities as they strive to achieve similar results and provide a blueprint for how to successfully run a hospital and serve their communities amidst today’s uncertainty and mounting pressures.”
