Davis Health System has announced two hospitals have been recognized with 2023 Performance Leadership Awards for excellence. Broaddus Hospital in Philippi was one of eight West Virginia hospitals to receive a performance award for quality. Davis Medical Center was one of six in the state to achieve top quartile performance in patient outcomes.
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/or patient perspective.
“We are extremely proud of the staff at Broaddus and Davis Medical,” said Vance Jackson, DHS president and chief executive officer. “This recognition demonstrates the focus our hospitals have placed on quality and patient outcomes improvement initiatives and the hard work our teams have exhibited to always set the bar higher.”
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 around the country to measure and monitor performance across several areas impacting hospital operations and finance.
“Wherever we go in rural America, we witness first-hand 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.”
