Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals Named by iVantage

iVantage Health Analytics announced the 2013 Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in the U.S.

iVantage Health Analytics used its Hospital Strength Index to rank rural, safety-net hospitals based on market conditions, clinical and operational performance and financial and qualitative outcomes. The characteristics of the 100 top critical access hospitals are described in a study by iVantage Health Analytics, "Benchmark Performance for Critical Access Hospitals." Here are some of the key findings from the study:

•    The 2013 list of 100 Top CAHs includes 60 previous awardees and 40 new facilities.
•    Overall, the 100 CAHs perform as well as or better at the median than all U.S. general acute-care hospitals.
•    The top 100 CAHs include roughly an equal share of independent and system-affiliated hospitals, at 52 percent and 48 percent, respectively.
