Congratulations Mercy Medical Center - New Hampton! We are grateful to have you in our community!
Mercy Medical Center - New Hampton has merited Top 20 Best Practices in Quality designation among all 1,332 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) in the nation. The National Rural Health Association considers Mercy Medical Center - New Hampton to be an exemplar in best practices in all of rural health care.
"We are truly honored to be named a Top 20 CAH for quality. Every day, our employees deliver quality care with leadership from our medical staff to assure the best outcomes for patients," stated Dr. Paul McQuillen.
The Top 20 Critical Access Hospitals, including Mercy-New Hampton, scored best among critical access hospitals on iVantage Health Analytics' Hospital Strength IndexTM for Quality. The Quality index is a rating of hospital performance based on the percentile rank across the five categories of Hospital Compare Process of Care measures. The quality of care provided in Acute Myocardial Infraction (Heart Attack), Heart Failure, Pneumonia, Congestive Heart Failure, Surgical Care and Outpatient measures is indexed across the range of national performance for each measure. The index scores are averaged to produce a single composite score.
"The award recognizes the hard work and commitment to quality that every one of Mercy's staff members, medical staff providers and volunteers have," expressed Bruce Roesler, Mercy - New Hampton CEO. "It is a confirmation of the strides we've made turning Mercy - New Hampton into one of the best rural hospitals in northeast Iowa."About the National Rural Health Association
