CHI St. Alexius Health Carrington was recently named a 2019 Top 20 Critical Access Hospital for overall performance in the country. This is the fifth time since 2014, CHI St. Alexius Health, Carrington has been recognized with the Top 20 distinction.

The Top 20 Critical Access Hospital “winners” are those hospitals who have achieved success in the overall performance based on a composite rating from eight indices of strength: inpatient market share, outpatient market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspectives, cost, charge and financial stability. This group was selected from The Chartis Center for Rural Health’s 2019 Top 100 Critical Access Hospital list, which was released earlier this year. CHI St. Alexius Health, Carrington is a seven-time recipient of the Top 100 Critical Access Hospital designation.

North Dakota Hospital Expands Palliative Care to Include Home Visits

Even hospitals are concerned about the rising costs of inpatient care, as well as the ability of frail patients to transport themselves to health appointments. To better address patient needs, North Dakota-based CHI-St. Alexius Health System is expanding its palliative care program to include outpatient and home-based services.

The hospital’s inpatient palliative care team emerged from its hospice program beginning in 2013, providing symptom management to patients who had not yet received a terminal diagnosis. The program picked up extra steam after the hospital began pursuing participation in the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer program, as well as other certifications such as trauma care, for which palliative care was a benchmark.
