“Los Alamos Medical Center is extremely fortunate to have an exceptionally hardworking staff that is dedicated to providing excellent patient care while managing in a complex and ever-changing business environment,” said Feliciano Jiron, CEO of Los Alamos Medical Center. “Many rural hospitals are dealing with very dire financial situations. LAMC has consistently managed to improve our level of patient satisfaction while maintaining financial integrity. This is a direct result of the management skills and commitment of our staff.”
The Hospital Strength INDEX™ is the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of hospital performance in the United States – capturing more than 4,000 acute care hospitals including over 1,300 rural and Critical Access Hospitals. Leveraging data from public data sources (e.g. Medicare Cost Reports, Medicare claims data, and Hospital compare), INDEX aggregates data from 66 individual metrics into three major categories and 10 pillars – including Population Health – to derive a single strength overall rating for each facility.
“Despite the many challenges rural hospitals face in today’s healthcare environment, they remain a vital and integral component of the community,” said Michael Topchik, senior vice president of iVantage Health Analytics. “The top quartile performers should be viewed as true market leaders. Through their commitment to performance analysis and improvement, they have established a blueprint for sustainability which other rural hospitals can follow.”
