PCMH Named in 62 Critical Access Hospitals to Know

Becker's Hospital Review is pleased to release the 2017 edition of its list of 62 Critical Access Hospitals to Know.

Perry County Memorial Hospital (PCMH) is one of these top 62 hospitals to know in the country.  “We are proud to be in this list for the third year in a row,” said Patrick Carron, PCMH President/CEO.  “This is an honor that is earned and cannot be bought. We are privileged to be able to provide quality services to our community.”

The critical access hospitals featured on this list have a reputation for superior service and care. All hospitals featured on this list have 25 or fewer inpatient beds and an annual average length of stay no more than 96 hours for acute care. These institutions also offer emergency care and are located at least 35 miles away from any other hospital.

To develop this list, the Becker's Healthcare editorial team examined the rakings and awards from organizations such as iVantage Health Analytics, Healthgrades, the National Rural Health Association, Truven Health Analytics, Women's Choice Award and Leapfrog Group. The team also considered the hospital's community impact and reputation for innovation.

The full list features individual profiles of all hospitals on the list.  The full list can be found by going to:
