Peterson named Top 20 Rural Community Hospital in nation

Contributed

Peterson Regional Medical Center in Kerrville was recently named one of the Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals in the country and is the only hospital in Texas to make this exclusive list.
The Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals, including Peterson Regional Medical Center, scored best among Perspective Payment System hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength Index™. The rankings were recently announced by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA). An awards ceremony will be held during NRHA’s Rural Hospital Innovation Summit conference May 11 in San Diego, CA.
The Top 20 Rural Community Hospital winners are those hospitals who have achieved success in the 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.
This group was selected from iVantage’s Top 100 Rural Community Hospital list, released earlier this year.
“Peterson Health is proud of the efforts of the exceptional physicians, nurses and employees who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation,” said Pat Murray, Peterson Health President and CEO. “Our results as a top health care provider means our community can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the future.”
