(12/5/13) Tomah Memorial Hospital has been named among the top 20 critical access hospitals in the United States for overall performance.
The National Rural Health Association recently announced the rankings which measured facilities on quality, patient perspective and financial stability.
Tomah Memorial Chief Executive Officer Phil Stuart said the recognition is humbling but a credit to hospital staff.
More than thirteen-hundred hospitals across the U-S are critical access facilities.
Tomah Memorial has been a critical access hospital since 2001. The program was created by the 1997 federal Balanced Budget Act to assure Medicare beneficiaries access to health care services in rural areas.
