For the 1st time, Becker's Hospital Review has published a list of "50 Critical Access Hospitals to Know" in the United States.
This list features critical access hospitals that have demonstrated excellence in caring for their communities. Providing quality healthcare in a rural setting presents its own set of specific challenges, but these organizations are rising above to meet the needs of their patients.
The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on awards and recognitions they have received. Specifically, the team looked at iVantage Health Analytics' list of Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals, the National Rural Health Association's list of Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals, patient satisfaction scores from CMS' Hospital Compare and various Healthgrades awards.
