The National Organization of State Office of Rural Health has announced that, as of September 2015, La Paz Regional Hospital in Parker, AZ is in the top quartile of all acute care hospitals in America.
For National Rural Health Day, which was November 19th, NOSORH says it is recognizing La Paz Regional for “overall excellence in Financial Strength, reflecting top quartile performance among all acute care hospitals in the nation,” assessed using aggregated data from 66 individual metrics.
“These top quartile performers should take great pride in this recognition,” said Michael Topchik, senior vice president of iVantage Health Analytics. “It showcases their commitment to continuous performance analysis and improvement. On this occasion of National Rural Health Day, it’s an honor to celebrate their achievement as they continue to serve their communities despite the many market, regulatory and financial pressures they face.”
