Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals

The National Rural Health Association recognizes the Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals from list of the Top 100 RCHs as determined by iVantage Health Analytics. The 20 overall winners have achieved success based on the Hospital Strength Index, a nationwide hospital rating system that evaluates rural perspective payment system (PPS) hospital market, value-based and financial measures. The Top 20 RCH winners are honored annually during a luncheon at NRHA's Annual Rural Health Conference and Rural Hospital Innovation Summit.
