Chartis unveils the 2023 Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals and the 2023 Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals.

Chartis, a comprehensive healthcare advisory firm, today unveiled the 2023 Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals and the 2023 Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals. This annual recognition program, which is based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX™ recognizes outstanding performance among the nation’s rural hospitals.

“Across the nation, top 100 rural providers continue to serve as a source of inspiration for hospital leadership teams and staff working diligently every day to improve the delivery of care within their local communities,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, the Chartis Center for Rural Health. “The list of award winners in each category is as geographically diverse as we’ve seen in some time, which is wonderful to see. We’re thrilled to be able to honor the outstanding efforts of these top performing rural hospitals.”

Among this year’s honorees in the Critical Access Hospital category are two facilities winning their 12th Top 100 award, two hospitals being recognized for the 11th time and 25 first-time recipients. In the Rural & Community Hospital category, which was introduced in 2016, there are 17 hospitals earning their 8th Top 100 award and 13 facilities being recognized for the first time. A complete list of this year’s award winners in each category can be found here.

Now in its 13th year, the INDEX is the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. Featuring a methodology utilizing publicly available data, the INDEX is leveraged nationwide by rural hospitals, health systems with rural affiliates, hospital associations and state offices of rural health to measure and monitor performance across a variety of areas impacting hospital operations and finance.
