Top 20 Rural & Community Hospitals

The National Rural Health Association recognizes the Top 20 Rural and  Community Hospitals from list of the Top 100 RCHs as determined by The Chartis Center for Rural Health. The 20 overall winners have achieved success based on the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX™, the most comprehensive and objective assessment of U.S. rural Prospective Payment System (PPS) hospital performance based upon market, value-based and financial measures. The Top 20 RCH winners are honored annually during a luncheon at NRHA's Annual Rural Health Conference and Rural Hospital Innovation Summit.
