Date: 09/06/17

St. Peter’s Hospital was recently named one of this year’s Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals in the country. Hospitals achieving Top 20 status received the highest ratings across several categories including quality, patient outcomes, costs, financial stability and market share. 

“I’m proud of our entire team for working together to achieve this impressive designation,” said Wade Johnson, CEO of St. Peter’s. “St. Peter’s is committed to serving our community’s needs, providing the highest quality of care, and working to maintain pricing that ranks among the very lowest in the state.”  

The Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals scored best among Perspective Payment System Hospitals on the iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength Index™. The top 20 hospitals achieved success in overall performance based on composite ratings. The eight indices of strength evaluated include inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, costs, charges and financial stability. St. Peter's was selected from iVantage's Top 100 Rural Community Hospital list, released earlier this year. 

The National Rural Health Association, a nonprofit organization working to improve the health and well-being of rural Americans and providing leadership on rural health issues through advocacy, communications, education and research, announced the top awardees and published information online at
