Boone County Health Center Earns Top 50 Designation

For the first time, Becker’s Hospital Review has published a list of “50 Critical Access Hospitals to Know” in the United States.  This list features critical access hospitals that have demonstrated excellence in caring for their communities. Providing quality healthcare in a rural setting presents its own set of specific challenges, but these organizations are rising above to meet the needs of their patients.  Amongst the 50 facilities named across the country is Boone County Health Center (Albion, NE).  They are one of only four facilities recognized in Nebraska including Brodstone Memorial Hospital in Superior, Cherry County Hospital in Valentine and Memorial Health Care Systems in Seward.
The Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on awards and recognitions they have received. Specifically, the team looked at iVantage Health Analytics’ list of Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals, the National Rural Health Association’s list of Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals, patient satisfaction scores from CMS’ Hospital Compare and various Healthgrades awards. Becker’s Hospital Review is a publication offering up-to-date business and legal news and analysis relating to hospitals and health systems.
