Moab Regional Hospital (MRH) was recently named one of iVantage’s Health Analytics’ Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) in the United States. This is the second time that the Moab hospital has received the honor — MRH was also recognized by iVantage in 2014.

Moab Regional scored in the top 100 of Critical Access Hospitals on iVantage’s Hospital Strength Index, according to a news release. The index is the healthcare industry’s “most comprehensive rating of rural and critical access hospitals, officials with iVantage said in the news release.

“The results recognize that the Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals provide a safety net to communities across rural America — measuring them across more than 70 different performance metrics, including quality, outcomes, patient perspective, affordability, population risk and efficiency,” iVantage officials said.

“As a not-for-profit hospital, our number one goal at Moab Regional Hospital is to provide high quality healthcare at a great value to our community,” said Jen Sadoff, CEO of Moab Regional. “This demonstrated that we are delivering both quality and value, and that is very fulfilling. We are so proud of the efforts of our physicians and staff, who have contributed to our achievement of this designation.”

The list of the top 100 Critical Access Hospitals and more information about the study is available online at iVantage Health Analytics provides healthcare software, support tools and other services to hospitals across the U.S.

“Rural healthcare deserves the same performance analysis as all provider performance. It plays a vital role for communities across America, serving more than 60 million people,” said Michael Topchik, senior vice president of iVantage Health Analytics. “The services provided in rural America are similar to those needed in any major metropolitan area, yet the volumes and economic resources provide little economies of scale, making for little benefit from scale. These top 100 Critical Access Hospitals exhibit a focused concern for their community benefits and needs, regardless of scale, reimbursement and people’s ability to pay.”

Moab Regional Hospital is a 17-bed not-for-profit critical access hospital and Level IV trauma center. For more information about MRH, visit:
