Superior, Ne – Brodstone Healthcare announced it has been recognized as a 2022 Top 100 Critical Access 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 very honored to be recognized as a Top 100 Critical Access Hospital for the 11th time out of the last 12 years,“ said Treg Vyzourek, CEO, Brodstone Memorial Hospital. “Our staff strives daily to make sure that our patients, families and communities receive the best care possible. This award demonstrates the dedication that our employees present on a daily basis. Their professionalism and willingness to go above and beyond for the communities we serve allows us to provide some of the best care available in the United States. Without our employees and their commitment, we couldn’t provide Superior Care Close to Home.

Despite unprecedented adversity rural providers continue to display resiliency and a steadfast commitment to their communities,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “Honoring the Top 100 is one of the highpoints of our year. We are delighted to recognize the exceptional performance and innovation of this year’s recipients, particularly in light of the extraordinary challenges facing America’s rural health safety net.

Leveraging publicly available data, the INDEX is trusted by rural hospitals, health systems with rural footprints, 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.
