ERMC receives national recognition for Performance Leadership in Patient Perspectives

nosorhEaton Rapids Medical Center (ERMC) announced it has been recognized by the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) for overall excellence in Patient Perspectives, reflecting top quartile performance among all rural hospitals in the nation. It is the second time ERMC has received the honor, with the first taking place in 2016.

“I’m so proud of the efforts our staff and physicians have made to achieve this recognition again,” stated Tim Johnson, ERMC President and CEO. “We made a commitment to improve the experience we provide to each and every patient, and our staff has remained dedicated to that promise. Our excellent team and the support of our community made this honor possible.”

The Performance Leadership Awards are determined each year using iVantage Health Analytics’ Hospital Strength INDEX®, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. Leveraging data from public data sources, the INDEX aggregates data from 50 rural-relevant metrics across eight pillars to derive a single overall percentile rating for all Critical Access Hospitals and Rural & Community Hospitals. The Performance Leadership Awards spotlight top performance in the areas of Quality, Outcomes and Patient Perspectives.


The National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) was established in 1995 to assist State Offices of Rural Health in their efforts to improve access to, and the quality of, health care for America’s 61 million rural citizens. NOSORH enhances the capacity of SORHs to do this by supporting the development of state and community rural health leaders; creating and facilitating state, regional and national partnerships that foster information sharing and spur rural health-related programs/activities; and enhancing access to quality healthcare services in rural communities.
