Performance Leadership Award 2023

Chartis Performance Leadership Award 2023

We are pleased to announce that Rangely District Hospital received the 2023 Performance Leadership Award, powered by Chartis.  RDH is ranked in the top quartile performance in Quality; an award given to only 100 hospitals in the nation.

(Fun fact: Did you know, according to the American Hospital Association, there are 6,129 hospitals in the United states, and that only 1,800 of those are rural?)

Compiled by the Chartis Center for Rural Health, the Performance Leadership Awards honor top quartile performance (i.e., 75th percentile or above) among rural hospitals in Quality, Outcomes and/or Patient Perspective.

The Performance Leadership Awards are based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX®, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. INDEX data is relied upon by rural hospitals, health systems with rural footprints, hospital associations and state offices of rural health around the country to measure and monitor performance across several areas impacting hospital operations and finance.

“Wherever we go in rural America, we witness first-hand the commitment, determination, and compassion with which rural hospitals serve their communities. Rural healthcare truly is mission-driven,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health.  Rangely District Hospital is thrilled that our staff's efforts are recognized through the Performance Leadership Award as they deliver high quality care in our rural community!
