Evanston Regional Hospital named Top Rural and Community Hospital

Feb 23, 2023

Evanston Regional Hospital in Evanston, WY was recently named one of the Top 20 Rural and Community hospitals in the country.

The National Rural Health Association (NRHA) has announced the 20 highest-ranked prospective payment system hospitals in the country based on an evaluation by the Chartis Center for Rural Health. The hospitals are identified using the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX, the most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural PPS hospital performance. These hospitals will be recognized May 18 during NRHA’s Rural Hospital Innovation Summit in San Diego, Calif.

The determining factors for the top 20 rural and community hospitals are based on eight indices: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charge, and finance.

“Evanston Regional Hospital is proud of the efforts of its physicians and staff who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation,” says Cheri Willard, CEO. “Our recognition as a top health care provider means our community can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the future. With continued progression in ensuring our facility offers the highest in Quality and Safe patient care we are excited to have moved from the Top 100 hospitals for the past 3 years, to the Top 20 in 2022. Big deal for Evanston to be on the National map.
