OGH Ranked in Top 12 Percent of Rural Hospitals Nationwide
June 17, 2020 – Ochiltree General Hospital is proud to announce that your local hospital has made progress in our goal of becoming a Top 100 Critical Access Hospital according to the information from the National Rural Health Association. iVantage – a healthcare analytics company working with health systems, community hospitals and rural providers – collects data from different sources and compares that data using eight different metrics to over 1,200 Critical Access Hospitals nationwide.
Two years ago, Ochiltree General Hospital set a goal to become one of the Top 100 hospitals in the nation and started working toward that goal diligently. As of July 2018, Ochiltree General was only at 22 percent of the top hospitals, July 2019 we had moved to 53 percent, and as of February 2020 we had reached 90.1 percent. These improvements rank your local hospital at 135 out of the 1,200 Critical Access Hospitals nationwide.
“Though your healthcare professionals know the level of care we provide right here at home in our community, it is gratifying to see the efforts of our hospital employees and staff making an impact on our standing amongst other hospitals nationally,” says Ochiltree General Chief of Staff Dr. Manon E. “Tripps” Childers. “We hope that this announcement is a source of pride for our community just as it is for each of us at Ochiltree General.”
As an organization, we recognize that the employees of Ochiltree General Hospital are responsible for this improvement and we want to thank each employee and staff member for their hard work and dedication to Ochiltree General. We also want to thank our community for the unending support you show us each and every day. Without our staff, friends and neighbors, we wouldn’t be the heart of your healthy community!
