PELLA, Iowa– Pella Regional Health Center has once again been recognized as a Top 100 Critical Access Hospital by the Chartis Center for Rural Health. Compiled by The Chartis Center for Rural Health, this annual recognition program honors outstanding performance among the nation’s rural hospitals based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX™.
