Delta County Memorial Hospital has received a second national award as one of the "Top 50 Critical Access Hospitals to Know" from Becker's Hospital Review. The Delta hospital is not officially recognized with a critical access designation, but is defined as a district, rural community hospital serving Delta County families.
Hospitals on this list represent a variety of regions across the USA, predominantly located in rural locations, and are playing a crucial role in the health and well being of their respective communities. This is the second year that Becker's has released a list of top critical access hospitals.
The selected hospitals were chosen based upon ranking and awards from respected organizations including iVantage Health Analytics, Healthgrades, National Rural Health Association, Truven Health Analytics, Women's Choice Award and the Leapfrog Group. Included hospitals earned recognition from one or more of the these organizations within the past two years.
Delta County Memorial Hospital was also named as one of the top 20 rural community hospitals in the nation earlier in 2016 by the National Rural Health Association, and is in the top 100, (or top three percent) of rural community hospitals nationally according to iVantage Analytics.
Becker's Hospital Review is a monthly publication with a circulation of 18,000 offering up-to-date business and legal news and analysis relating to hospitals and health systems.
