SageWest Health Care in Riverton, Wyoming.

The banners have been hung in continued celebration of SageWest Health Care being named one of the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals in the United States earlier this year by The Chartis Center for Rural Health.

SageWest Health Care in Lander, Wyoming.

Regarded as one of the industry’s most significant designations of performance excellence, the annual Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals award is based upon the results of the Hospital Strength INDEX® from iVantage Health Analytics. Hospitals recognized as a Top 100 facility scored in the top 100 among all rural and community hospitals nationally with evaluation indicators including inpatient market share, outpatient market share, cost, charge, quality, outcomes, patient perspective and financial stability to determine an overall score for each hospital.

“In an era of increased complexity and uncertainty, Top 100 hospitals have established themselves as a bellwether for rural provider performance,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader of The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “Top 100 status is a real indicator of how proactive these hospitals are when it comes to pushing for performance improvement in areas such as quality, outcomes, patient safety, market share and finance.”

The list included 4 Wyoming hospitals including Ivinson Memorial Hospital in Laramie, Sheridan Memorial Hospital, and St Johns Medical Center in Jackson.

If you happen to visit either SageWest Hospital, take a moment to congratulate and say thank you to the hardworking staff who are providing healthcare excellence to our communities.

Congratulations, SageWest!
