Lynn County Hospital District in Tahoka, TX was recently named one of the Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) for Top 20 Best Practices in Patient Satisfaction in the country.

The Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals, including Lynn County Hospital District, scored best among critical access hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength Index™ for Patient Satisfaction. The rankings were recently announced by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA). An awards ceremony will be held during NRHA’s Critical Access Hospital Conference in September in Kansas City, Mo.

The Top 20 Critical Access Hospital “winners” are those hospitals who have achieved success in the overall performance based on a composite rating from nine indices of strength: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, population risk, cost, charge, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, and financial stability. This group was selected from iVantage’s Top 100 CAH list, released earlier this year.

Those hospitals that have been recognized as Top 20 Critical Access Hospital “best practice recipients” have achieved success one of two key areas of performance:

Quality index: A rating of hospital performance based on the percentile rank across the five categories of Hospital Compare Process of Care measures.

Patient perspective index: A rating of hospital performance based on the percentile rank on two Hospital Compare HCAHPS measures (“Overall Rating” and “Highly Recommend)”.

“Lynn County Hospital District is proud of the efforts of its physicians and staff who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation,” said Jeff Barnhart, CEO “Our results as a top 20 Best Practices in Patient Satisfaction designation means our community can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the future.”
