Pomerene Hospital recognized for their leadership

Pomerene has been recognized for its top performance in the areas of quality, outcomes and patient perspective.


On National Rural Health Day, Pomerene Hospital announced it has been recognized by the Chartis Center of Rural Health and the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health for overall excellence in outcomes reflecting top quartile performance among all rural hospitals in the nation.

“We are so pleased to see Pomerene recognized for performance leadership for four straight years now,” Pomerene Hospital CEO Tony Snyder said. “This recognition confirms our dedication to providing high-quality patient care and health-care services to the greater Holmes County area.”

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 and 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 at 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.”

NOSORH was established in 1995 to assist state offices of rural health in their efforts to improve access and quality of health care for America’s 61 million rural citizens by supporting the development of state and community rural health leaders; creating and facilitating state, regional and national partnerships that foster information-sharing and spur health-related programs/activities; and enhancing access to quality health-care services in rural communities.
