Last week Thursday, November 19, 2015 Stoughton Hospital was recognized on National Rural Health Day by iVantage Health Analytics and the National Organization of State Office of Rural Health (NOSORH), for its excellence in Performance Leadership and Patient Perspectives, reflecting the top twenty-five percent of performance scores among all acute care hospitals in the nation.
The ranking was designated by the Hospital Strength INDEX™, a data-driven program designed to objectively compare hospital performance. Stoughton Hospital is one of 4,000 acute care hospitals in which data is compared.
“These top quartile performers should take great pride in this recognition. It showcases their commitment to continuous performance analysis and improvement. On this occasion of National Rural Health Day, it’s an honor to celebrate their achievement as they continue to serve their communities despite the many market, regulatory and financial pressures they face.” said Michael Topchik, senior vice president of iVantage Health Analytics.
“I am proud of our staff and our commitment to excellence,” states Teresa Feidt, CNO/Vice President of Patient Services. “We continue to provide high quality health care and look for innovative ways to increase patient satisfaction and overall efficiency.”
