Electra Memorial named to top 20 in the country

Local News

Electra Memorial Hospital has some new bragging rights on the national stage, and the accolades come thanks in part to those they care for.

The facility was recently named one of the top 20 Critical Access Hospitals in the country.

Electra Memorial scored best on a survey done by the Chartis Center for Rural Health for patient satisfaction.    

The Top 20 Critical Access 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, cost, charge and financial stability.

This group was selected from The Chartis Center for Rural Health’s 2018 Top 100 CAH list, which was released earlier this year.

“Electra Memorial Hospital is proud of the efforts of its physicians and staff who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation,” said Rebecca McCain, Electra Hospital District CEO. “Our results as a top Critical Access Hospital for patient satisfaction means our community can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the future.”

Electra Memorial provides laboratory, radiology, cardiopulmonary services, as well as a 24-hour emergency department and is designated as a Level IV Trauma Center.

Hospital leaders will grab their hardware at a special conference in the fall in Kansas City, Mo.
