WGH recognized for performance leadership

As part of National Rural Health Day, Wilbarger General Hospital today announced it has been recognized with a 2023 Performance Leadership Award for excellence in Quality. 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.
Robert Webb, Board Chair person said, “It is exciting to see Wilbarger General Hospital receive national recognition for clinical performance. The Board of Trustees is proud of the hospital team and appreciate their hard work and dedication.”
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.”
Tom Siemers, CEO said, “Wilbarger Hospital is one of twenty-three hospitals in Texas to receive this Quality Award. Dr. Lehman, Chief of Staff, and the entire clinical team are focused on making sure each person receives top- quality medical care. This national award is a testament of their efforts.”
