Schneck recognized as a Top 100 Rural and Community Hospital

Schneck Medical Center recently announced it has been named a 2021 Top 100 Rural and Community Hospital in the United States by The Chartis Center for Rural Health.

The annual award — regarded as one of the industry’s most significant designations of performance excellence — is determined by the results of iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX, according to a news release from the Seymour hospital.

This is the third consecutive year Schneck has received the Top 100 designation and is one of only five hospitals in Indiana to be selected.

“We are honored to be named as a top performer among rural hospitals in the nation,” said Dr. Eric Fish, president and chief executive officer of Schneck. “This recognition reaffirms our commitment to providing excellent health care while maintaining efficient and effective operations. It is the dedication and compassionate care of all the Schneck team that has made this distinction possible.”

Utilizing 50 independent indicators, the INDEX assesses performance across eight pillars of performance that span market-, value- and finance-based categories. Hospitals recognized as a Top 100 facility had one of the 100 highest overall scores among all rural and community hospitals nationally.
