Fairview Park Hospital in Dublin, Georgia announced it has been recognized as a 2023 Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital. Compiled by The Chartis Center for Rural Health, this annual recognition program honors outstanding performance among the nation’s rural hospitals based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX™.
“We are proud to be the only hospital in Georgia recognized as a Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital”, commented Donald R. Avery, FACHE, President and CEO of Fairview Park Hospital. “This is a tremendous accomplishment and is evidence of the focus, energy, and hard work our staff puts into the overall safety and quality of care we provide at Fairview Park Hospital. It means we are a top performer in risk management, securing best outcomes for our patients, paying close attention to patient satisfaction, and achieving higher quality ratings than our peers. This is not something that happens by chance. We are blessed to have leadership and staff who are committed to the well-being of our patients and providing top notch quality care day in and day out.”
"Across the nation, top 100 rural providers continue to serve as a source of inspiration for hospital leadership teams and staff working diligently every day to improve the delivery of care within their local communities,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, the Chartis Center for Rural Health. “The list of award winners in each category is as geographically diverse as we’ve seen in some time, which is wonderful to see. We’re thrilled to be able to honor the outstanding efforts of these top performing rural hospitals.”
Now in its 13th year, the INDEX has established itself as the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. Leveraging publicly available data, the INDEX is trusted by rural hospitals, health systems with rural affiliates, hospital associations and state offices of rural health across the country to measure and monitor performance across a variety of areas impacting hospital operations and finance.
