From the Knox County Hospital
KNOX CITY– Knox County Hospital announced it has been named a 2020 Top 100 Rural and Community Hospital by The Chartis Center for Rural Health. This annual award honoring rural hospital performance is determined by the results of iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®.
“Delivering both superior healthcare and patient satisfaction is not only what is right, it is what we’re here to do,” said Stephen Kuehler, CEO of Knox County Hospital District. “This award is a testament to the hard work and commitment our entire team has made to ensuring we are doing what we can to deliver the best possible patient-centric care and service.”
Based entirely on publicly available data, the INDEX is the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. 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.
According to Kuehler, maintaining superior standards at Knox County Hospital and across all facilities owned by the hospital district is imperative. “Quality standards save lives,” Kuehler said. “At Knox County Hospital District, all of our facilities are committed to enhancing quality improvement efforts to ensure that our patients receive the right care at the right time.”
