Olympic Medical Center Named a 2018 Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital

March 7, 2018 -
2nd year in a row OMC recognized
PORT ANGELES – For the second year in a row, The Chartis Center for Rural Health recognized Olympic Medical Center one of the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals in the United States.
"Olympic Medical Center operates in an uncertain environment with many external strains such as low government reimbursement and a complex regulatory environment, and struggling to manage local issues like behavioral health and the results of the community’s opioid crisis. Amidst this uncertainty, however, we work hard to continually improve, achieve higher quality, secure better outcomes, focus on safety and increase patient satisfaction, all while operating at a lower cost than our peers,” says Eric Lewis, Chief Executive Officer, Olympic Medical. 

"We are very proud of our employees and medical staff; and their skills, dedication and hard work are making a huge positive difference for our patients and community.”

Olympic Medical scored in the top 100 of rural and community hospitals on a hospital strength index assessed by iVantage Health Analytics. This index is the hospital industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural provider performance, and its results are the basis for many of rural health care’s most prominent awards, advocacy efforts and legislative initiatives. The full list of Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals can be found at www.ivantageindex.com/top-performing-hospitals. Olympic Medical Center was the only hospital in Washington State to receive this recognition.

The Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals play a key role in providing a safety net to communities across America, and according to The Chartis Center for Rural Health, the iVantage Health Analytics index measures these facilities across eight pillars considered as hospital strength: inpatient share ranking, outpatient share ranking, cost, charge, quality, outcomes, patient perspective and financial stability.

"The Hospital Strength index provides a true benchmark for helping rural providers to better understand performance levels and identify areas of improvement. When we look across the spectrum of rural-relevant index indicators, the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals are establishing a new standard for how to deliver higher quality care to their communities despite an unpredictable healthcare environment,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader of The Chartis Center for Rural Health.
