Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital Wins Three HealthStrong™ Awards
iVantage Health announced the latest HealthStrong Award™ winners at the annual meeting of the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health held this October in Asheville, NC. The HealthStrong Awards are based on The Hospital Strength Index™, a national ratings program developed by iVantage to recognize top performing hospitals based on key metrics critical to success in the new healthcare marketplace. The Hospital Strength Index ranks all 4,400+ U.S. general acute care hospitals, including the 1,300+ Critical Access Hospitals. The Index is based on eight performance categories, measuring 56 different performance metrics. The Index offers hospital executives, trustees and boards of directors an objective way to measure their relative performance internally and among their peers.
“We are extremely pleased to be recognized by iVantage with these three awards,” said Susan E. Mooney, MD, MS, president and CEO of Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital. “Continually improving the quality of health care services in the community is an important part of our mission, and it is exciting to be recognized for the hard work and dedication everyone at APD puts into making that mission a reality.”
Small and rural hospitals play a critical role in providing efficient and effective healthcare that is comparable to its larger urban counterparts. “Rural hospitals have new and difficult demands that can only be managed with better information. The Hospital Strength Index reflects the multiple challenges of running a hospital by incorporating the measures on which the industry has worked to gain consensus and standardization,” said John Morrow, executive vice president of iVantage Health Analytics, Inc.
