HARRISON - North Arkansas Regional Medical Center (NARMC) is honored to be named one of the 2018 Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals in the United States by The Chartis Center for Rural Health. This is the second consecutive year NARMC was named to this prestigious list.
NARMC scored in the top 100 of rural and community hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics' Hospital Strength INDEX®. The INDEX is the industry's most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural provider performance, and its results are the basis for many of rural healthcare's most prominent awards, advocacy efforts and legislative initiatives. The list of the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals can be found at www.ivantageindex.com/top-performing-hospitals
The Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals play a key role in providing a safety net to communities across America - and the INDEX measures these facilities across eight pillars of hospital strength: Inpatient Share Ranking, Outpatient Share Ranking, Cost, Charge, Quality, Outcomes, Patient Perspective and Financial Stability.
The Hospital Strength INDEX provides a true benchmark for helping rural providers to better understand performance levels and identify areas of improvement. When looking across the spectrum of rural-relevant INDEX indicators, the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals are establishing a new standard for how to deliver higher quality care to their communities despite an unpredictable healthcare environment says Michael Topchik, National Leader of The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
