As part of National Rural Health Day, Bellin Health Oconto Hospital today announced it has been recognized with a 2023 Performance Leadership Award for excellence in Quality and Patient Perspective. Compiled by the Chartis Center for Rural Health, the Performance Leadership Awards honor top quartile performance (i.e., 75th percentile or above) among rural hospitals in Quality, Outcomes and Patient Perspective.
“Bellin Health Oconto Hospital is honored to receive the 2023 Performance Leadership Award for excellence in Quality and Patient Perspective from The Chartis Center for Rural Health,” said Julie Bieber, Vice President of Bellin Health Oconto Hospital. “This recognition is a testament to the unwavering dedication of our care teams. Their commitment to putting patients first throughout their entire care journey has established them as leaders in patient satisfaction in our community. We are grateful for their hard work and the culture they have cultivated at Bellin Health Oconto Hospital.”
The Performance Leadership Awards are based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX®, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. INDEX data is relied upon by rural hospitals, health systems with rural footprints, hospital associations and state offices of rural health nationwide to measure and monitor performance across several areas impacting hospital operations and finance.
“Wherever we go in rural America, we witness firsthand the commitment, determination and compassion with which rural hospitals serve their communities. Rural healthcare truly is mission-driven,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “This National Rural Health Day, let us recognize the efforts of this year’s Performance Leadership Award winners and all those driven to deliver high-quality care throughout rural communities.”
