Released: 11/17/16

Winneshiek Medical Center today announced it has been recognized by iVantage Health Analytics and the National Organization of State Office of Rural Health (NOSORH) for overall excellence in Patient Satisfaction, Outcomes, and Quality, reflecting top quartile performance among all rural acute care hospitals in the nation.

The rankings have been determined by the Hospital Strength INDEX®, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. In partnership with NOSORH, iVantage Health Analytics has developed a data-driven program designed to identify excellence across a broad spectrum of indicators relevant to hospital performance and patient care. The Hospital Strength INDEX captures performance metrics for all rural and Critical Access Hospitals. Leveraging data from public data sources, INDEX aggregates data from 66 individual metrics into three major categories and nine pillars to derive a single strength overall rating for each facility.

In 2016, Winneshiek Medical Center has been named a Top 100 Critical Access Hospital by iVantage, a Top 20 Critical Access Hospital by the National Rural Health Association, and one of 50 Critical Access Hospitals to Know by Becker’s Hospital Review.

“The awards we’ve received in 2016 are truly honoring our providers and staff, who exhibit a deep commitment to quality, safety, a positive patient experience each and every day,” says Lisa Radtke, chief administrative officer of Winneshiek Medical Center. “2016 has been an exciting year for us and we are thankful.”
