The Memorial Hospital in Craig received high honors from its hospital management company, Quorum Health Resources, earning the distinction of 2012 Best Performing Critical Access Hospital.
According to a TMH news release, the award honored the Craig hospital over 65 other facilities managed by QHR.
According to the news release, QHR CEO James L. Horrar attributed the honor to the hospital’s 23-percent growth in net patient revenue as well as the opening of three new services, including a 24/7 hospitalist program, a cardiac rehabilitation program and a chemotherapy infusion clinic.
TMH also increased its clinic visits by almost 50 percent from 2010 to 2011.
Horrar also cited that TMH was named one of the 100 Best Places to work in Healthcare by Becker’s Hospital Review, and that the hospital’s net patient revenue growth was the highest in the company at 23 percent from 2010 to 2011.
TMH Chief Executive Officer George Rohrich said in the news release that the honor is a testament to the hospital staff’s commitment.
“This award is an acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication of our staff,” he said. “Our growth and success is directly tied to the exceptional care and service given by staff to our patients and visitors.”
QHR has managed TMH for 25 years. In 2011, QHR honored TMH with an award for the largest growth in net patient revenue.
