The Top 20 CAHs scored best among all U.S. critical access hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength Index™. The hospitals have achieved success in overall performance, based on a composite rating from eight indices of strength: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, costs, charges and financial stability.

Forty “best practice” designations were also given to facilities that have achieved success in one of two key areas of performance: 1) quality index, or 2) patient perspective index. CHI Health Plainview, Plainview, NE, was named a Top 20 Critical Access Hospital Best Practice in Quality; and CHI Health Schuyler, Schuyler, NE, was named a Top 20 Critical Access Hospital.
