Superior, NE – As part of the National Rural Health Day celebration in mid-November, Brodstone Healthcare announced that it has been recognized with a 2022 Performance Leadership Award for excellence in the areas of quality and patient perspective. Compiled by The Chartis Center for Rural Health, the Performance Leadership Awards honor top quartile performance (e.g., 75th percentile or above) among rural hospitals.

“Patient experience and quality is something that guides us in every decision we make here at Brodstone,” said Treg Vyzourek, CEO at Brodstone Healthcare. “We’re proud of this accomplishment but even more proud of the communities and patients we serve.”

The Performance Leadership Awards are based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX™, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. INDEX data is trusted and relied upon 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 several areas impacting hospital operations and finance.

"Although the last two years have placed unprecedented pressure on the rural health safety net, the dedication to serving the community that we're so accustomed to seeing from rural hospitals across the country hasn't wavered," said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health. "Let us celebrate the power of rural and honor the facilities working tirelessly to provide access to high quality healthcare services to their communities."
