C.A. Dean named Health Strong Top 100 Critical Access Hospital

    GREENVILLE — Charles A. Dean Memorial Hospital was recently named one of the HealthStrong Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) in the U.S.

    “Charles A. Dean Memorial Hospital is proud of the efforts of its physicians and staff who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation,” said Geno Murray, president and CEO.
    The HealthStrong Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals, including Charles A. Dean Memorial Hospital, scored best among critical access hospitals on the iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength Index. The 2013 Top 100 CAH announcement is the second release of this important designation. The Hospital Strength Index is first-ever comprehensive rating of CAHs and the results recognize the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals that provide a “safety- net” to communities across rural America —measuring them across 56 different performance metrics, including quality, outcomes, patient perspective, affordability and efficiency.

    “Rural hospitals play a critical role in providing needed care to communities across America, yet the challenges are completely different while being as complex as urban hospitals. The need for enhanced performance and a framework for success are equally important as hospitals prepare for the impact of health reform,” said John Morrow, EVP of iVantage Health Analytics.
