Osmond General Hospital receives national recognition

OSMOND — Osmond General Hospital (OGH) recently announced it has been recognized by iVantage Health Analytics and the National Organization of State Office of Rural Health (NOSORH) for overall excellence in Patient Satisfaction reflecting top quartile performance among all rural acute care hospitals in the nation.

“Being recognized nationally for this award is a testament to the hard work and dedication the entire staff at OGH have put into providing quality care and treating each patient as the most important patient.” stated Lon Knievel, administrator for the hospital.

The rankings have been determined by the Hospital Strength INDEX®, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. In partnership with NOSORH, iVantage Health Analytics has developed a data-driven program designed to identify excellence across a broad spectrum of indicators relevant to hospital performance and patient care. The Hospital Strength INDEX captures performance metrics for all rural and Critical Access Hospitals. Leveraging data from public data sources, INDEX aggregates data from 66 individual metrics into three major categories and nine pillars to derive a single strength overall rating for each facility.
