Clarke County Hospital Recognized for Performance Leadership by The Chartis Center for Rural Health

OSCEOLA – As part of National Rural Health Day, Clarke County Hospital announced today that it has been recognized with 2023 Performance Leadership Awards for excellence in the areas of both Quality and Patient Perspective. Compiled by the Chartis Center for Rural Health, the Performance Leadership Awards honor top quartile performance (75th percentile or above) among rural hospitals in Quality, Outcomes and/or Patient Perspective.

“Clarke County Hospital is proud to serve as the cornerstone of healthcare in South Central Iowa,” said Brian Evans, CEO at Clarke County Hospital. “This recognition is a testament to our commitment to providing high-quality healthcare services to our rural communities. Our dedicated providers and staff work tirelessly to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care close to home. We are proud to be a part of the communities we serve, and we look forward to continuing to grow and expand our services to meet the evolving needs of our rural communities.”

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. “This National Rural Health Day, let us recognize the efforts of this year’s Performance Leadership Award winners and all those driven to deliver high quality care throughout rural communities.”
