Jefferson County Hospital Named Top Critical Access Hospital

 Jefferson County Hospital was recently named one of the country’s top 20 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) for Quality.

The top 20 CAHs, including Jefferson County Hospital, scored best among CAHs as determined by the Chartis Center for Rural Health for Quality. The National Rural Health Association (NRHA) recently announced the rankings. An awards ceremony will be held during NRHA’s Critical Access Hospital Conference in September in Kansas City, Mo.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the work done by our team at Jefferson County Hospital. This award is a great acknowledgment of the compassionate care delivered at JCH. We are honored with the trust the Jefferson County community has given us,” said Jay Johnson, President/CEO of DRH Health.

The top 20 CAHs have succeeded in overall performance based on a composite rating from eight indices of strength: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, Quality, outcomes, patient perspective, cost, charge, and finance. This group was selected from the Chartis Center for Rural Health’s 2022 Top 100 CAH list, released earlier this year.

The quality recognition award from the NRHA is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff at JCH, who have made it their mission to provide the highest level of quality care to our patients,” stated J.P. Edgar, RN, President of Jefferson County Hospital.
