Pella Regional on Top 100 Critical Access Hospital List for 2019

PELLA, Iowa— Pella Regional Health Center is one of the 2019 Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals named by the Chartis Center for Rural Health. Regarded as one of the industry’s most significant designations of performance excellence, the Chartis Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals is based upon the results of the Hospital Strength INDEX from iVantage Health Analytics.

Leveraging 50 rural-relevant indicators across eight pillars, the index provides a comprehensive and objective assessment of rural provider performance. The index framework is used nationally by state offices of rural health, health systems and rural hospitals to measure and monitor rural hospital performance and is the foundation for several national programs and legislative initiatives.

“It’s great to see our efforts in performance improvement in key areas such as quality, outcomes, patient safety, market share and finance are making an impact,” said Bob Kroese, Chief Executive Officer at Pella Regional.
