Riverview Regional Medical Center (RRMC) has been recognized with a 2023 Performance Leadership Award for excellence in Quality. RRMC was presented with this award as part of National Rural Health Day on November 16. Compiled by the Chartis Center for Rural Health, the Performance Leadership Awards honor top quartile performance (i.e., 75th percentile or above) among rural hospitals in Quality, Outcomes and/or Patient Perspective.
“At Riverview Regional we are proud to be our community’s choice for healthcare,” said Carolyn Sparks, CEO of Riverview Regional Medical Center. “Focusing on providing quality care that is safe, effective, patient-centered, timely and efficient directly improves the outcomes for our patients, and I think this award proves that commitment to quality at RRMC.”
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.”
