ST. JAMES, Minn. — Mayo Clinic Health System in St. James was recently named one of the Top 100 Critical-Access Hospitals in the U.S. by IVantage Health Analytics and The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
Mayo Clinic Health System in St. James scored in the top 100 of Critical-Access Hospitals on IVantage Health Analytics' Hospital Strength Index. The index is the industry's most comprehensive rating of rural providers. It provides the data foundation for the annual Rural Relevance Study, and its results are the basis for many of rural health care's most prominent awards, advocacy efforts and legislative initiatives.
"It's an honor to be recognized as a Top 100 Critical-Access Hospital," says Jennifer Langbehn, D.O., medical director for Mayo Clinic Health System in St. James. "This recognition is truly a testament to the hard work and patient-centered care that our team commits to each and every day."
The Top 100 Critical-Access Hospitals play a key role in providing a safety net to communities across America, and the index measures them across eight pillars of hospital strength: inpatient share ranking, outpatient share ranking, cost, charge, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives and financial stability.
