BRMC Named One of Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals in the US

The National Rural Health Association (NRHA) recently named Baxter Regional Medical Center one of the Top 20 Rural Community Hospitals in the United States, based on an evaluation conducted by The Chartis Center for Rural Health using iVantage Health Analytics. BRMC has been named to the NRHA Top 100 Rural Community Hospitals the past two years and is the only hospital in Arkansas and Missouri to be named in the top 20. BRMC is one of five hospitals in Arkansas and Missouri included in the top 100 for 2018.

The 20 highest ranked prospective payment system (PPS) hospitals in the country were based on eight indices: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, costs, charge and financial stability.

“Baxter Regional Medical Center is proud of the efforts of its physicians and staff who have contributed to our hospital achieving this designation,” said Ron Peterson, BRMC President and CEO. “Our results as a top healthcare provider symbolize the commitment to our purpose of preserving BRMC as a comprehensive, independent, community-driven health system in order to optimize access to quality healthcare for patients in the communities we serve.”
