PORTALES, NEW MEXICO, November 19, 2018 – Roosevelt General Hospital announced it has been recognized by The Chartis Center of Rural Health and the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) for overall excellence in Outcomes category, reflecting top quartile performance among all rural hospitals in the nation.

“We are honored to win the 2018 NOSORH Performance Leadership Award,” said Kaye Green, RGH chief executive officer. “Earning this award reflects the hard work of our employees and their outstanding performance among rural providers. RGH staff is dedicated to serving our community and being the model for comprehensive rural and value-based health care. I am so thankful to be part of this wonderful RGH team.”

The Performance Leadership Awards are determined each year using iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. Leveraging data from public data sources, the INDEX aggregates data from 50 rural-relevant metrics across eight pillars to derive a single overall percentile rating for all Critical Access Hospitals and Rural & Community Hospitals. The Performance Leadership Awards spotlight top performance in the areas of Quality, Outcomes and Patient Perspective.

“National Rural Health Day provides the ideal opportunity to spotlight the power of rural and recognize those facilities excelling in Quality, Patient Satisfaction and Outcomes,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “We’re thrilled to partner with NOSORH on this program and commend this year’s recipients who are working diligently to provide quality care within their communities.”
