OCAHS Named One Of “50 Critical Care Hospitals To Know”

CAH_Logo_2016Orange City, Iowa — A northwest Iowa hospital was recently recognized in Becker’s Hospital Review for playing a crucial role in the health and well-being of the community it serves.

Orange City Area Health System was recognized in Becker’s Hospital Review 2016 edition of its “50 Critical Access Hospitals to Know” list.  Orange City Health System CEO Marty Guthmiller tells KIWA what the rankings are based on.

The hospitals included on this list serve a variety of regions across the United States.  Guthmiller explains what a “Critical Care Hospital” is.

This is the second year Becker’s has published a list recognizing 50 outstanding critical access hospitals in the nation, and Guthmiller says Orange City Area Health System made the list last year, as well.

According to Becker’s they selected critical access hospitals for inclusion based on rankings and awards from respected organizations, including iVantage Health Analytics, Healthgrades, the National Rural Health Association.  Guthmiller says OCAHS has received some of those awards, as well, but stressed that, while the awards are nice, OCAHS is more proud of their achievements in patient satisfaction.
