TOMAH — Two national rural health organizations have recognized Tomah Memorial Hospital for overall excellence in patient outcomes.

The recognition ranks Tomah Memorial in the top quarter of all rural hospitals in the nation, according to the organizations, the Chartis Center for Rural Health/iVantage Health Analytics and the National Organization of State Office of Rural Health.

Michael Topchik, national leader of the Chartis Center for Rural Health, said Tomah Memorial and others in the top quarter excel “in managing risk, achieving higher quality, securing better outcomes, increasing patient satisfaction, or operating at a lower cost than their peers.”

The facilities “serve as a benchmark for other rural facilities as they strive to achieve similar results and provide a blueprint for how to successfully run a hospital and serve their communities amidst today’s uncertainty and mounting pressures,” Topchik said.
