Schneck Medical Center named top 20 hospital

The National Rural Health Association has announced that Schneck Medical Center has been named one of the Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals in the country.

Earlier in the year, the Seymour hospital was named a Top 100 Rural and Community Hospital. This recognition is considered “the best of the best” of that top 100.

Indiana had three of the 20 hospitals honored this year. In addition to Schneck, Logansport Memorial Hospital in Logansport and Major Health Partners in Shelbyville were included.

The ranking is based on an evaluation by The Chartis Center for Rural Health using iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength Index. The determining factors for the top 20 rural community hospitals were based on eight indices: Inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, costs, charge and financial stability.

“Schneck is proud of the efforts of its physicians and staff who have contributed to our organization achieving this designation,” said Warren Forgey, president and chief executive officer of Schneck. “Our recognition as a top health care provider means our community can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the future.”
