Gothenburg Health recognized for Excellence in Quality
Gothenburg Health has been recognized by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services as a 2023 Rural Provider Excellence in Quality Award recipient. This annual award honors Top 10 overall performance in quality among Nebraska’s 63 Critical Access Hospitals.
The Rural Provider Excellence in Quality Award utilizes the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX© framework to analyze Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) measures for each of the 63 Critical Access Hospitals in Nebraska. The analysis percentile-ranks performance for each facility across nearly two dozen metrics and those facilities with the 10 highest scores are recognized with the Rural Provider Excellence in Quality Award.
“Nebraska’s Critical Access Hospitals are deeply invested in high-quality care, and we are proud of the patient experience these facilities and their staff are delivering to rural communities across our state,” said Nancy Jo Hansen, Flex and SHIP Program Manager, Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. “We’re delighted to be able to recognize the efforts of those who are setting the standard for hospital quality in rural Nebraska."
“Each year, Nebraska’s Critical Access Hospitals are among the best performing rural hospitals according to our INDEX analysis. We are thrilled to once again partner with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services on this unique award program and recognize the achievements of these Top 10 performers for hospital quality,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
