As part of National Rural Health Day on Nov. 21, Boone County Health Center announced it has been recognized by The Chartis Center of Rural Health and the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) for overall excellence in Quality and Patient Perspective.
Based on the results of the Hospital Strength Index from Vantage Health Analytics, the Performance Leadership Awards reflect top quartile performance among all rural hospitals in the United States in either Quality, Outcomes or Patient Perspective.
“Awards like this are a natural result of our ongoing focus on patient- centered care at Boone County Health Center,” said Chief Medical Officer Dr. Lynette Kramer. “It’s really all about the patient, and if they are getting exceptional care then we are achieving our number one priority.”
The Hospital Strength Index is the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. Leveraging data from publicly available data sources, the index aggregates data from 50 rural-relevant metrics across eight pillars of performance.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2020, the Hospital Strength Index serves as the data foundation for a number of industry-leading rural recognition programs and legislative initiatives.
