Winona Health again recognized among Top 100 Rural and Community Hospitals in U.S.

2nd consecutive year Winona Health on Top 100 list

Several Winona Health staff members gather for a “Top 100” photo. Earning a spot on the Top 100 list takes the commitment of the entire Winona Health team: physicians, associate providers, staff and volunteers.

Winona Health was named a Top 100 U.S. Rural & Community Hospital for the second consecutive year.

Earning a spot on the Top 100 list is based on performance across numerous metrics collected on all hospitals by the National Rural Health Association’s Rural Health Policy Institute, iVantage Health Analytics and the Chartis Center for Rural Health. It is the healthcare industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural provider performance.

“What this means to our patients is that our staff is committed to providing the best healthcare possible while maintaining an efficient, effective and sustainable organization,” said Rachelle Schultz, EdD, Winona Health president/CEO. “Winona Health is a Top 100 hospital thanks to talent and continued hard work of our physicians, associate providers, staff and volunteers. It reflects perseverance in focusing on the right work to benefit our patients and community.”

The Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals play a key role in providing a safety net to communities across America – and the INDEX measures these facilities across eight pillars of hospital strength: Inpatient Share Ranking, Outpatient Share Ranking, Cost, Charge, Quality, Outcomes, Patient Perspective, and Financial Stability.

“The Hospital Strength INDEX provides a true benchmark for helping rural providers to better understand performance levels and identify areas of improvement. When we look across the spectrum of rural-relevant INDEX indicators, the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals are establishing a new standard for how to deliver higher quality care to their communities despite an unpredictable healthcare environment,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader of The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
