Castleview Hospital Named as a Top 20 Rural Hospital
February 28, 2020
Price, Utah, Mar. 2, 2020 – Castleview Hospital was recently named to the top 20 rural and community hospitals by The National Rural Health Association (NRHA) out of 1,821 total rural community hospitals across the United States. Castleview accompanies only two other Utah hospitals on the list. This year marks the hospital’s third time being named a top 20 rural and community hospital in the past four years.
“As we celebrate our 40th anniversary this year, this designation means even more to us,” said Greg Cook, chief executive officer at Castleview Hospital. “Being named a top 20 rural and community hospital is a direct result of the sustained passion and commitment our entire staff gives in serving our neighbors, friends and community. It is also indicative of the support we continue to receive from our community. This award is as much for them as it is the hospital.”
The designation is based on an evaluation by the Chartis Center for Rural Health using iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength Index. The determining factors for the top 20 rural and community hospitals were based on eight indices: quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, inpatient market share, outpatient market share, costs, charges and financial stability.
“We value the ongoing efforts and collaboration of our physicians, providers, staff and community, stated Cook. “Castleview Hospital offers high quality care now, and plans to well into the future. This is a team effort because only by working together are we able to honor our mission to make communities healthier.”
The Castleview Hospital administration team has been invited to attend an awards ceremony at the NRHA’s Rural Hospital Innovation Summit on May 21 in San Diego, CA where they will presented the award.
