Madison County Memorial Hospital named to Top 20 Critical Access Hospital list
Madison County Memorial Hospital in Winterset was recently named one of the Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), based on patient satisfaction, in the country.
The Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals, including Madison County Memorial Hospital scored best among Critical Access Hospitals in iVantage Health Analytics' Hospital Strength Index for patient satisfaction. The rankings were recently announced by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA). An awards ceremony was held during NRHA's Critical Access Hospital Conference this past Month held in Kansas City, MO.
Those hospitals that have been recognized as Top 20 Critical Access Hospital "best practice recipients" have achieved success in one of three key areas of performance:
Quality index: A rating of hospital performance based on the percentile ran across the five categories of Hospital Compare Process of Care measures
Patient perspective index: A rating of hospital performance based on the percentile rank on two Hospital Compare HCAHPS measures ("Overall Rating," and "Highly Recommend).
Financial stability index: A rating of hospital performance based on the percentile rank on a set of balance sheet and income statement financial ratios.
Overall: A rating based on the average rating among all pillars of strength.
The Top Critical Access Hospital "winners" are those hospitals that have achieved success in the overall performance based on a composite rating of all ten of iVantage's indices of strength.
Hospital CEO, Marcia Hendricks, RN, MHA, FACHE said, "Madison County Memorial Hospital is proud of the efforts of its physicians and staff who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation." She said, "Our results as a top performer in the patient perspective index means our community can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the future.

These patient satisfaction scores reflect the efforts of every single department and individual in this hospital. All hospitals are trying to deliver top-notch patient experiences and you have done it! Congratulations."
