Speare Memorial Hospital has just been named on Becker’s Hospital Review 2017 list of “62 Critical Access Hospitals to Know”. This is the third year Becker’s has published a list recognizing outstanding critical access hospitals in the nation, and Speare has been honored all three years.
According to Becker’s, “The critical access hospitals featured on this list have a reputation for superior service and care. All hospitals featured on this list have 25 or fewer inpatient beds and an annual average length of stay no more than 96 hours for acute care. These institutions also offer emergency care and are located at least 35 miles away from any other hospital.”
To develop this list, the Becker’s Healthcare editorial team examined the rankings and awards from organizations such as iVantage Health Analytics, Healthgrades, the National Rural Health Association, Truven Health Analytics, Women’s Choice Award and Leapfrog Group. The team also considered the hospital’s community impact and reputation for innovation.
