Area hospitals honored in ‘Top 100’ list

Schneck Medical Center in Seymour and Major Hospital in Shelbyville have been named to the “Top 100 Rural and Community Hospitals” in the nation. That’s according to The National Rural Health Association’s Rural Health Policy Institute, iVantage Health Analytics and The Chartis Center for Rural Health.

Stephanie Furlow, Schneck spokeswoman, says that the release of this list expands on research presented as part of the report: “2017 Rural Relevance Study: Vulnerability to Value” from The Chartis Group. She explains that the hospitals named are top performers in managing risk, achieving higher quality, securing better outcomes, increasing patient satisfaction and operating at a lower cost than their peers.
