November 16, 2023
As part of National Rural Health Day, Sidney Health Center today announced it has been recognized with a 2023 Performance Leadership Award for excellence in Outcomes. Compiled by the Chartis Center for Rural Health, the Performance Leadership Awards honor top quartile performance (i.e., 75th percentile or above) among rural hospitals in Quality, Outcomes and/or Patient Perspective. 

Sidney Health Center was one of the eight hospitals in Montana that was recognized in the top quartile nationwide in the outcomes index as measured by the Chartis Center for Rural Health. 

"I am honored to accept the Performance Leadership Award in Outcomes on behalf of our incredible team. This recognition is a testament to the commitment and hard work of our dedicated team members,” stated Jennifer Doty, Sidney Health Center CEO, "This award is not just a celebration of our past achievements but a reaffirmation of our dedication to shaping a healthier and more resilient future for our community."

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 relied upon by rural hospitals, health systems with rural footprints, hospital associations and state offices of rural health around the country to measure and monitor performance across several areas impacting hospital operations and finance. 

“Wherever we go in rural America, we witness first-hand the commitment, determination, and compassion with which rural hospitals serve their communities. Rural healthcare truly is mission-driven,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “This National Rural Health Day, let us recognize the efforts of this year’s Performance Leadership Award winners and all those driven to deliver high quality care throughout rural communities.”
