Castleview Hospital named to Top 20 Rural Community Hospital list

Castleview Hospital was recently named to the Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals out of 2,157 Hospitals. This is all based upon achieved success and overall performance, including patient safety and quality outcome indicators.

The Top 20 Rural Community Hospital winners are those hospitals who have achieved success in the overall performance based on a composite rating from eight indices of strength: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, costs, charges and financial stability.
This group was selected from iVantage’s Top 100 Rural Community Hospital list, released earlier this year.

“Castleview Hospital is proud of the efforts of its physicians and staff who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation,” said Mark Holyoak, Castleview Hospital CEO. “Our results as a top healthcare provider means our community can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the future. I would also like to thank the community for their continued support, I know we could not have achieved this without them.”

“NRHA is committed to ensuring our members have the best information to manage their hospitals,” said Brock Slabach, NRHA membership services senior vice president. “And we’re pleased to recognize the accomplishments of these rural community hospitals.”

Castleview Hospital’s administration team were able to attend an awards ceremony on May 10, to receive the award.
