Eight North Dakota hospitals named among top 100 Critical Access Hospitals
Grand Forks, N.D.–Eight Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) in North Dakota have been named to the Top 100 CAHs for 2022, according to the Chartis Center for Rural Health. Top 100 hospitals are top performers, excelling in financial efficiency, achieving higher quality, securing better outcomes, increasing patient satisfaction, and operating at a lower cost than their peers across the U.S.
“We are proud to see so many North Dakota CAHs represented this year,” said Jody Ward, program director of the North Dakota CAH Quality Network. “Throughout the state, our hospitals have continually kept up with an influx of patients while maintaining the high-quality patient care we are known for. To see eight of our hospitals being recognized in the Top 100 means we are doing things correctly.”
