TVH Receives Performance Leadership Award for Quality and Patient Perspectives

As part of the National Rural Health Day celebration, Teton Valley Health (TVH) announced it has been recognized with a 2022 Performance Leadership Award for excellence in Quality and Patient Perspective. Compiled by The Chartis Center for Rural Health, the Performance Leadership Awards honor top quartile performance (e.g., 75th percentile or above) among rural hospitals in Quality, Outcomes, and Patient Perspective.

“We are honored to have been recognized for the outstanding care our staff provide patients and their families on a daily basis,” says TVH’s CEO, Dr. Nathan Levanger. “Each of us at TVH plays a special role in serving our valley, and as a result of the culture of quality and compassion we have built, patients experience comfort and hope when they need it most. I am both humbled and grateful to serve alongside our brilliant team and for the time and attention they give to every aspect of our work.”

The Performance Leadership Awards are based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX™, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. INDEX data is trusted and relied upon by rural hospitals, health systems with rural footprints, hospital associations and state offices of rural health across the country to measure and monitor performance across several areas impacting hospital operations and finance.

“Although the last two years have placed unprecedented pressure on the rural health safety net, the dedication to serving the community that we’re so accustomed to seeing from rural hospitals across the country hasn’t wavered,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “Let us celebrate the power of rural on National Rural Health Day and honor the facilities working tirelessly to provide access to high quality healthcare services to their communities.”
