Gothenburg, Nebraska, November 15, 2018 – Today, on National Rural Health Day, Gothenburg Health announced it has been recognized by The Chartis Center of Rural Health and the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) for overall excellence in Quality and Outcomes reflecting top quartile performance among all rural hospitals in the nation.
 
“It’s an honor to be recognized with a select group of high-quality healthcare organizations,” said Mick Brant, Gothenburg Health CEO. “I'm so proud of our staff and providers. They strive each day to build upon and enhance their care on a daily basis. As an organization, we constantly seek to improve quality and outcomes, but it’s rewarding to gain real insight that our ongoing efforts are working. Our recognition as a performance leader in quality and outcomes means that our service area can count on Gothenburg Health to provide the level of care and services they need while staying close to home," added Brant.
 
The Performance Leadership Awards are determined each year using iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. Leveraging data from public data sources, the INDEX aggregates data from 50 rural-relevant metrics across eight pillars to derive a single overall percentile rating for all Critical Access Hospitals and Rural & Community Hospitals. The Performance Leadership Awards spotlight top performance in the areas of Quality, Outcomes and Patient Perspective.
 
“National Rural Health Day provides the ideal opportunity to spotlight the power of rural and recognize those facilities excelling in Quality, Patient Satisfaction and Outcomes,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “We’re thrilled to partner with NOSORH on this program and commend this year’s recipients who are working diligently to provide quality care within their communities.”
