Pomerene Hospital Recognized As A Top 20 Rural Hospital in the Nation


Pomerene Hospital is among the Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals in the nation.The 20 highest ranked perspective payment system (PPS) hospitals in the country, as determined by iVantage Health Analytics, were recently announced by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA). Pomerene and other Top 20 winners were recognized at an awards ceremony during NRHA’s Rural Innovation Hospital Summit on May 12th.

The determining factors for the top 20 rural community hospitals were based on nine indices: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, population risk, cost, charge, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives and financial stability. NRHA’s Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals Winners are the highest ranked of the aggregate scores across these nine pillars.


“NRHA is committed to ensuring our members have the best information to manage their hospitals,” said Brock Slabach, NRHA membership services senior vice president. “We’re pleased to recognize the accomplishments of these rural community hospitals.”


This elite group is a subset of the Top 100 Rural Community Hospital lists that iVantage Health Analytics recently published. Pomerene recently received recognition from iVantage for the Top 100 Rural Community Hospital award.


“There are over 2,000 rural hospitals in the United States,” stated Tony Snyder, CEO of Pomerene Hospital. “To be recognized in the top 1% of rural hospitals nationwide is an immense honor. We always strive to provide our community with nothing but the best, high-quality care, and we have an amazing group of people who are committed to making Pomerene strong in all areas of healthcare.”
