Logansport Memorial Hospital recognized by The Chartis Center for Rural Health as a 2019 Top 100 Rural and Community Hospital for the fourth straight year

Logansport Memorial Hospital is proud to announce that it has been named one of the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals in the United States by The Chartis Center for Rural Health. Regarded as one of the industry’s most significant designations of performance excellence, the annual Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals award is based upon the results of the Hospital Strength INDEX® from iVantage Health Analytics.

“This achievement is very gratifying and validates our daily commitment to providing the best healthcare possible to our community, while maintaining an efficient and effective facility,” comments Perry Gay, President and CEO. He went on to say, “Logansport Memorial is proud of the efforts of our physicians and staff who have contributed to our achievement of this designation. To be among the small group of hospitals who can say they have been recognized by this award for four straight years is a true honor, and we want our community to be proud of their hospital and the quality of care that’s available to them, right here at home.”

“As a community hospital, we are committed to our patients and all those we serve as a key partner in their overall health and wellness,” says Perry. “We consistently look for innovative ways to pursue a patient-centered approach to healthcare that meets the needs of our patients and exceeds their expectations. It takes our entire team –engaged providers, forward-thinking executives, and exceptional staff at all levels to achieve results and outcomes that lead to designations like this. We will continue building upon the successes we have reached thus far, and hope to work toward many more.”

Hospitals recognized as a Top 100 facility scored in the top 100 among all rural and community hospitals nationally. Now in its ninth year, the INDEX leverages 50 rural-relevant indicators across eight pillars of hospital strength (i.e. Inpatient Market Share, Outpatient Market Share, Cost, Charge, Quality, Outcomes, Patient Perspective and Financial Stability) to determine an overall score for each hospital. Each of the INDEX’s 50 indicators is culled from publicly-available data sources.

“In an era of increased complexity and uncertainty, Top 100 hospitals have established themselves as a leader for rural provider performance,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader of The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “Top 100 status is a real indicator of how proactive these hospitals are when it comes to pushing for performance improvement in areas such as quality, outcomes, patient safety, market share and finance.”
