Butte - St. James Healthcare was recently named one of the Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals in the country.
The Top 20 Rural Community Hospital winners are those hospitals who have achieved success in the overall performance based on a composite rating from eight indices of strength: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, costs, charges and financial stability. On these measures, St. James Healthcare received a total score of 99.1 out of a possible score of 100. This group was selected from iVantage’s Top 100 Rural Community Hospital list, released earlier this year.
“We are very pleased to be named to Top 20 list and we are proud of our physicians and all our staff who made it possible for us to achieve this designation,” said Jay Doyle, St. James Healthcare Interim President. “Our entire staff has worked very hard over the past few years to ensure we are providing the very best and highest quality care possible and it is gratifying to be recognized for that work,” he said. “Our results as a top health care provider means the residents of Butte and throughout southwestern Montana can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the future.”
The Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals scored best among Perspective Payment System hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength Index™. The rankings were recently announced by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA). An awards ceremony will be held during NRHA’s Rural Hospital Innovation Summit conference May 11 in San Diego, Calif.
