Seven rural Hoosier hospitals named to Top 100 list

HUNTINGTON, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — Seven hospitals serving rural communities in Indiana have been named Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals in the U.S. by The Chartis Center for Rural Health.

The index is based on a variety of factors, including market, value and finance-based categories. Chartis says the hospitals on the list received the highest overall scores among all rural and community hospitals across the country.

“The Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital award program reminds us that rural providers haven’t lost touch with their mission and are committed to delivering better quality, better outcomes and better patient satisfaction,” said Michael Topchik, national leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health.

Here’s the list of seven Indiana hospitals to earn the achievement:

  • Major Hospital, Shelbyville
  • Marion General Hospital, Marion
  • Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, Jasper
  • Parkview Huntington Hospital, Huntington

Fort Wayne-based Parkview Health has two hospitals to make the list. The health system says it’s the second straight for Parkview Noble and Parkview Huntington to be recognized as a Top 100 hospital by Chartis.

“It is such a pleasure to receive this important recognition again,” said Juli Johnson, president, Parkview Huntington Hospital. “Our hospital team members take great pride in providing world-class care for every patient, and Top 100 recognition is a great reinforcement of all their hard work, patient advocacy and teamwork.”
