Top 20 Rural Hospital

This past March, HaysMed was named one of the top 20 rural and community hospitals in the country by The National Rural Health Association (NRHA). HaysMed was the only hospital in Kansas to earn this designation.

“HaysMed is proud of the efforts of its physicians and Associates who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation,” said Eddie Herrman, President and CEO. “Our recognition as a top health care provider proves our community can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the future.”

The NRHA 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. HaysMed was recognized May 12 during NRHA’s Rural Hospital Innovation Summit in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

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