JCHC Named Top 100 Critical Access Hospital, Fairbury NebraskaJCHC Named One of Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals for the Second Year

FAIRBURY, Neb. - For the second consecutive year, Jefferson Community Health Center has been named a top 100 critical access hospital in the United States according to iVantage Health Analytics.

http://www.tomahhospital.org/media/Top%20100%20CAH%20JPG%20Logo%201000%20px%20-%20Copy(1).jpgJefferson Community Health Center scored in the top 100 of critical access hospitals (CAHs) on the iVantage Strength INDEX™ in 2014 and 2015. The INDEX is the industry's most comprehensive rating of U.S. acute care hospitals, and the only one to include the country's 1,300 CAHs.

JCHC Named Top 100 Critical Access Hospital, Fairbury NebraskaJCHC was also named one of the nation’s 2015 HEALTHSTRONG Hospitals by iVantage. The HEALTHSTRONG designation names JCHC as one of the 572 HEALTHSTRONG hospitals from the 4,334 indexed hospitals.

"These recognitions are an affirmation that our emphasis on quality, performance and satisfaction are making a difference in to the community we serve and to our hospital. It is because of the work and care of our staff, physicians and board, and the support of our community that we are able to meet and surpass the benchmarks for recognition," said Chad Jurgens, JCHC chief executive officer. "We are pleased to be honored not only as one of the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in the nation, but as one of the top 572 hospitals of any size."

JCHC Named Top 100 Critical Access Hospital, Fairbury NebraskaWhile many rural hospitals struggle financially nationwide, this recognition is a reminder that JCHC has been able to remain financially strong, and continues to provide the technology that modern health care facilities require. JCHC is just completing a nearly two-year renovation project allowing the facility to now offer state-of-the-art private patient rooms and renovated ancillary service areas.

"We are pleased to be nearing the end of our renovation, and feel it is has greatly enhanced our services to our patients and customers," Jurgens said.

The top 100 CAHs were measured on 62 different performance metrics, including quality, outcomes, patient perspective, affordability, population risk and efficiency.

"Rural health care deserves the same performance analysis as all provider performance. It plays a vital role for communities across America, serving nearly 80 million people. The services provided in rural America are similar to those needed in any major metropolitan area, yet the volumes and economic resources provide little economies of scale, making for little benefit from scale. These top 100 Critical Access Hospitals exhibit a focused concern for their community benefits and needs, regardless of scale, reimbursement and people’s ability to pay," said Michael Topchik, senior vice president of iVantage Health Analytics.

It is the second consecutive year that Jefferson Community Health Center has been named to the Top 100 Critical Access Hospital list. JCHC is one of seven Nebraska Critical Access hospitals to be recognized this year. Other Nebraska Critical Access Hospitals named to the Top 100 CAH list are: Brodstone Memorial Hospital, Superior; Boone County Health Center, Albion; York General Hospital, York; Memorial Health Care Systems, Seward; Cherry County Hospital, Valentine; and Gordon Memorial Hospital, Gordon.
