Mercy Centerville a top performer

CENTERVILLE — Centerville's Mercy Medical Center was recently recognized by iVantage Health Analytics as a HealthStrong Award winner for Excellence in Efficiency, reflecting top quartile performance among all acute care hospitals in the nation.

“We are an outstanding health care organization, having positioned ourselves to be one of the strongest performing critical access hospitals in the state of Iowa, but knowing that we are one of the best in the nation is quite an honor," said Clint Christianson, president of Mercy Centerville.

iVantage Health announced the latest HealthStrong Award winners at the annual meeting of the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health held in October in Asheville, N.C. The HealthStrong Awards are based on The Hospital Strength index, a national ratings program developed by iVantage to recognize top-performing hospitals based on key metrics critical to success in the new health care marketplace. The Index is based on eight performance categories, measuring 56 different performance metrics.
