The Chartis Center for Rural Health recently released its annual list of the top 100 rural and community hospitals in the U.S. This 11th annual recognition program honors outstanding performance among the nation’s rural hospitals.
To determine the 2021 list, the Chartis Center used the Hospital Strength Index, which assesses performance in eight areas: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charge and financial efficiency.
The hospitals are listed by state. The list includes six hospitals from South Dakota, all are SDAHO Member facilities.
