Johnson Memorial Health Services Recognized as HealthStrong™ Award winner for Excellence in Patient Satisfaction.

Johnson Memorial Health Services Hospital was recognized by iVantage Health Analytics as HealthStrong™ Award winner for Excellence in Patient Satisfaction, reflecting top quartile performance among all acute care hospitals in the nation.

Lori Andreas, Director of Nursing for the Hospital said “We are very pleased to be recognized for excellence in patient satisfaction at a national level. It really validates all the work our staff does to ensure that all of our patients receive excellent and quality care.”

iVantage Health announced the latest HealthStrong Award™ winners at the annual meeting of the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health held last November in Madison, WI. The HealthStrong Awards are based on The Hospital Strength Index™, a national ratings program developed by iVantage Health Analytics™ to recognize top performing hospitals based on key metrics critical to success in the New Healthcare. The Hospital Strength Index ranks all 4,400+ U.S. general acute care hospitals, including the 1,300+ Critical Access Hospitals. The Index is based on eight performance categories measuring 56 different performance metrics. The Index offers hospital executives, trustees and boards of directors an objective way to measure their relative performance internally and among their peers.

Small and rural hospitals play a critical role in providing efficient and effective healthcare that is on par with its larger urban counterparts.  “Rural hospitals have new and difficult demands that can only be managed with better information. The Hospital Strength Index reflects the multiple challenges of running a hospital by incorporating the measures on which the industry has worked to gain consensus and standardization,” said John Morrow, executive vice president of iVantage Health Analytics, Inc.
