Schneck named a top rural hospital

The National Rural Health Association has announced that Schneck Medical Center in Seymour has been named one of the Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals in the country.

Earlier in the year, Schneck was named a Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital. This recognition is considered “the best of the best” of that Top 100.

Indiana had three of the twenty hospitals honored this year. In addition to Schneck, Logansport Memorial Hospital in Logansport and Major Health Partners in Shelbyville were also included.

The ranking is based on an evaluation by The Chartis Center for Rural Health using iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength Index. The determining factors for the top 20 rural community hospitals were based on eight indices: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, costs, charge, and financial stability.

“Schneck is proud of the efforts of its physicians and staff who have contributed to our organization achieving this designation,” said Warren Forgey, President & CEO of Schneck. “Our recognition as a top health care provider means our community can count on us to deliver the services they need now and in the future.”
