Mercy Medical Center, Roesburg, OR, was named one of the Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals in the nation for 2017. These hospitals have achieved success in overall performance evidenced by a composite rating from eight indices: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, costs, charges and financial stability.

“This recognition is due to the hard work and commitment of our staff members, the support and dedication of our medical community and the visionary leadership of our Board of Directors,” said Kelly Morgan, Mercy Medical Center president and CEO. 

The study behind the award is based upon the Hospital Strength INDEX by iVantage Analytics, designed to objectively compare hospital performance.
