The results recognize the top critical access hospitals that form the safety net to rural communities across America – measuring them across 60 different performance metrics, including quality, outcomes, patient perspective, affordability and efficiency. Drawing on the Top 100 list, Riverwood was recognized as a Top 20 Critical Access Hospital from 1,346 peer hospitals nationwide and 78 in Minnesota for two consecutive years, 2017 and 2018. The National Rural Health Association announces the winners and recognizes each with an award at its annual conference.
