Top Critical Access Hospital
Becker’s Hospital Review, an industry leading print publication, has named CHI St. Alexius Health Dickinson as one of the ‘Top 67 Critical Access Hospitals to Know’ in the country.
It is the third consecutive year that CHI St. Alexius Dickinson has been recognized by the health care print publication. CHI St. Alexius Dickinson was on Becker’s ‘Top 62 Critical Access Hospitals to Know’ list in 2017 and their ‘Top 66’ list in 2018.
“This is not something that we applied for or asked to be recognized for,” said Vice President of Patient Care Services DeeAnna Opstedahl. “Our focus is totally on the patient. So it is amazing to be recognized for all the hard work the staff does on a daily basis.”
Becker's Healthcare editors selected the hospitals based on awards and rankings from respected organizations including iVantage Health Analytics, The Chartis Group, the National Rural Health Association, CareChex, Healthgrades and Medicare star ratings. Editors also considered the hospital's community impact and reputation for innovation.
“It’s always humbling when some outside organization recognizes you or your organization for the accomplishments that you have achieved,” adds President Reed Reyman. “To be listed as one of the top 67 critical access hospitals in the United States is a great honor.”
CHI St. Alexius Health Dickinson was one of three North Dakota health care facilities on the ‘Top 67’ list. There are 1,400 critical access hospitals in the United States.
