UHD recognized as outstanding critical access hospital - Faribault County Register, April 22, 2013

For the second time, United Hospital District in Blue Earth has been named one of the HealthStrong (tm) Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) in the United States.

"United Hospital District is proud of the efforts of its physicians and staff who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation," said Jeff Lang, CEO.  "UHD is grateful to our communities for all the support we receive.  Healthcare access is a vital component of any vibrant rural community and we are committed to serving the residents of the area with safe, compassionate and quality care."

The HealthStrong (tm) Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals, including United Hospital District, scored best among critical access hospitals on the iVantage Health Analytics' Hospital Strength Index (tm).  The 2013 Top 100 CAH announcement is the second release of this important designation.  The Hospital Strengh Index is the first-ever comprehensive rating of CAHs and the results recognize the Top 100 Critial Access Hospitals that provide a "safety-net" to communities acrosss rural America - measuring them across 56 different performance metrics, including quality, outcomes, patient perspective, affordability and efficiency.  More information can be found at www.iVantageHealth.com/HSI. 

"Rural hospitals such as UHD play a critical role in providing needed care to communities across America, yet the challenges are completely different while being as complex as urban hospitals.  The need for enhanced performance and a framework for success are equally important as health reform," said John Morrow, EVP of iVantage Health Analytics.
