Top performing facilities excel in managing risk, achieving higher quality, securing better outcomes, increasing patient satisfaction, and operating at a lower cost than their peers. These hospitals serve as a benchmark for other rural facilities. The annual identification and recognition of the top performing rural healthcare organizations also highlight the value these rural facilities provide to their communities.

The CCRH Top 100 CAHs are determined by using the Hospital Strength INDEX® from iVantage Health Analytics. Each year, the rural hospitals are analyzed through the lens of the Hospital Strength INDEX, a comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance.
