Brodstone Honored as a 2021 Top 100 Critical Access Hospital

Superior, Ne Brodstone Memorial Hospital announced it has been recognized as a 2021 Top
100 Critical Access Hospital. Compiled by The Chartis Center for Rural Health, this 11th annual
recognition program honors outstanding performance among the nation’s rural hospitals based
on the results of the Hospital Strength INDEX®. Brodstone has been a recipient of this honor 10
times, more than any other Critical Access Hospital in Nebraska.

As a facility, we are very proud to once again be named one of the Top 100 Critical Access
Hospitals in the nation,” said Treg Vyzourek, CEO of Brodstone Memorial Hospital. “This being
our 10th top 100 award, we have come accustomed to being amongst the best. Our
expectations to continue providing this level of care are very high throughout the facility. Our
staff has worked tirelessly to attain this award and we are very proud of the work that is being
done at Brodstone.”

Over the course of the last 11 years, the INDEX has grown to become the industry’s most
comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. Based entirely on
public data and utilizing 36 independent indicators, the INDEX assesses rural hospitals across
eight pillars of performance, including market share, quality, outcomes, patient perspective,
cost, charge, and financial efficiency. The INDEX framework is widely used across the nation by
independent rural hospitals, health systems with rural footprints and state offices of rural
health, which provide access to INDEX analytics through grant-funded initiatives.

“The Top 100 program continues to illuminate strategies and innovation for delivering higher
quality care and better outcomes within rural communities,” said Michael Topchik, National
Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “We are delighted to be able to spotlight the
efforts of these facilities through the INDEX framework.”
