Grover M. Hermann Hospital Named One of the Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals in the Country for a Second Year
Catskill Regional Medical Center’s Grover M. Hermann Hospital in Callicoon, NY has been named one of the Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) in the country for Quality. This is the second year in a row that the Hospital has received this designation from the National Rural Health Association (NRHA). Grover M. Hermann Hospital scored best among critical access hospitals, as determined by The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
“Quality healthcare for every patient is our primary goal every day. Earning this designation ensures that our staff is backing up its commitment to building a healthier community,” said Rolland Bojo, VP Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer at Catskill Regional Medical Center and Administrator at Grover M. Hermann Hospital. “Catskill Regional Medical Center is proud of the efforts of the physicians, nurses and staff at Grover M. Hermann; each of whom has contributed to this achievement.”
Each hospital recognized by the NRHA has achieved success in overall performance based on a composite rating from eight indices of strength:
- Inpatient market share
- Outpatient market share
- Patient perspectives
- Financial stability
This group was selected from The Chartis Center for Rural Health’s 2018 Top 100 CAH list, which was released earlier this year.
Grover M. Hermann Hospital’s designation is based on a Quality index: A rating of hospital performance based on the percentile rank across the five categories of Hospital Compare Process of Care measures. The hospital will be recognized during an awards ceremony during NRHA’s Critical Access Hospital Conference in September in Kansas City, Mo.
